Lots of trails/hikes to waterfalls in the area, and several are accessible to all ages and abilities. Really scenic drive on the New Jersey side, but the PA side is also pretty - just more congested. Took loads of pictures, lots of areas to picnic, helpful Rangers, really nice area.

Went hiking and I can not even begin to explain all the beautiful breath taking sites I seen. Just walking around and taking in the scenery is something I definitely I recommend.

Let me start out by saying wow, the views from both here and the NY side are spectacular. We spent the afternoon taking pictures, eating lunch, wandering around. People are extremely friendly. Great place to stop

This place is made for everybody! The Dingman Falls Visitor Center is definitely worth a visit. There are knowlegable rangers and this weekend there were guided hikes and talks. There are two very beautiful waterfalls here that are easily accessible for ages 2 to 92!
We also biked a part of the McDade Trail passing thru woods, small bridges and corn fields. It was scenic throughout. The Delaware Water Gap area equals any US National Park. I hope to bike there soon again.

We drove along the point lookouts of the DWG. Don't waste your time. We saw 3 of the 9 lookouts. Some of the signs must be missing. Nothing great to see here.
