Nice drive up Rte. 209 with lots of trails and waterfalls available. We were amazed at the icy beauty of Raymondskill Falls, the tallest falls in PA. And don't miss the charming town of Milford at the north end of the park.

Foliage was beautiful and the waterfalls amazing. Great hiking trails, too. Travel the Pennsylvania side and avoid the stupid NJ tolls.
