our trip to the falls was so much fun, trails marked, have wooden boardwalk for handicap, me and my wife saw rock climbers going up lower falls, looked fun. meet nice people on the way up, steps go up to top, no swimming aloud, very well maintained.also if your on route 611 check out Delaware Water gap national park, it will be worth staying all day, start early.

A very easy handicap accessible trail leads you past the Silver Thread falls to the larger Dingman falls. We were told that you could see the falls best from the bottom so opted not to climb the steps to the top. A large photography group was just leaving when we got there so we were able to view and take pictures easily. Would have liked to have learned more about the area, but the Visitors Center was closed .

The second-highest falls in Pennsylvania, Dingmans is a worthy stop any time of year that is both easy to reach and free to visit. In the early summer the ravine is full of Rhododendron, the fall visitor is greeted by colorful falling leaves... the falls are very exciting after a good spring rain, and imagine a 130-foot high icicle in the winter! (Visiting in winter means an easy 1-mile walk up the road from the small parking area on US209, as Johnny Bee Road is supposed to be closed.)
The visitor center is open daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and then weekends only til the end of the fall foliage season. There is plenty of parking and there are restrooms available. The "trail" is actually a boardwalk, and is only about 2000 feet from parking to falls. While somewhat narrow, there are viewing areas at both falls sufficient for a few visitors and a couple camera tripods. "Both falls"? Yes! Shortly after entering the ravine, the narrow but beautiful Silverthread Falls surprises people who were just expecting to walk to the end for the "main attraction".

Getting there:
The address listed by TripAdvisor as of this writing, "Dingmans Falls Road", doesn't exist. The closest address for those of you using traditional GPS units is 1 Mollineaux Road, or just go to the intersection of US209 and Johnny Bee Road and follow the signs. The coordinates for the parking area are 41.229209,-74.887245. The National Park Service has correct information, the incorrect information is from the Pike County web site. I have submitted corrections to TA (crosses fingers).

My husband and I enjoyed a quick, easy hike at Dingmans Falls. The trail is very well-maintained, and handicap accessible to the base of the fall. We enjoyed the hike up the stairs to the top of the falls, as well. The falls were beautiful from both angles. A senior photography group arrived soon after we did, so the hike back was a bit crowded at spots with tripods, etc, but that was the only small downside to our visit.

GPS Hint...put this in: "199 Johnny B Road" The address on the website and the address listed here on Tripadvisor would not be accepted by my Garmin GPS or my Mazda CX9 Navigation system. "199 Johnny B Road" IS THE ACCESS ROAD to the Visitor's Center for Dingmans Falls where you need to park your vehicle. Additional tip: Also in this same town (Dingmans Ferry PA) is another GREAT and FREE of charge park called: "George W. Childs Park" This GW Childs Park has three waterfalls and many photo opportunities to light up your Facebook page. Dingmans Falls can be done in an hour but probably most people will be like us an take 1.5 because of posing again and again for photos. George W. Childs requires more walking and I strongly suggest you plan for 2 hours for George W. Childs Park....oh yeah...my GPS hint for George W. Childs Park is: "100 Silver Lake Road" This GPS address will put you on the road that leads you up to the Park's entrance and parking lot. As for the details on what you will see and what to expect at Dingmans Falls...read the reviews that were recently posted. Many good and accurate reviews are already available. I just know you'll appreciate getting there...and my GPS hints will help you accomplish that.
