Explore Dingmans Falls

0.4 miles

Added by Matt Alt

Very easy hike, no fee, easy parking, and outstanding waterfalls that are a must see!

The waterfall is about 0.2 miles into the hike. I would recommend going to the very top of the biggest waterfall towards the end of the hike, there are steps leading up to it! There's also a hidden water hole at the very top of the waterfall about 0.2 miles up stream, I saw people in it during the summer. This is an outstanding trail that is very maintained, easy to walk on.

No Dogs

We had our pup with us and they wouldn't allow dogs. Pretty bummed about that since our pup loves to hike with us.

Another Easy Access Beautiful Waterfall

The trail is a short hike on a boardwalk, great for all to check out this waterfall. It's a worthwhile stop!

Nice Waterfall But There Are Better Ones In The Area

The waterfall is fun for a family outing or a group that isn't more experienced with hiking. The entire walk is on a board walk. You cannot swim here which is the worst part. It was disappointing. Then my friends and I drove down the road to Raymondskill waterfalls which is much better. You can swim on the top part of the waterfall and jump off the smaller ones. It really all depends on the experience you want.

Beautiful Waterfalls

We went in the beginning of March and the road leading to the Visitors Center and trailhead were closed. We had to walk about a mile and a half to get to the trail. Once we got there it said that dogs are prohibited on the trail, which was a bummer because we had our dog with us and already walked that far to get to the trail. Since it was off season we took a chance and went anyway. The walk was beautiful and easy.
