The tallest waterfall in Pennsylvania Raymondskill falls tumble 180′ as Raymondskill creek swiftly descends towards the Delaware River. A viewing platform at the base of the falls offers a view of the falls as the water cascades down from the upper portion of the falls while a second platform overlooks a small pool at the top of the waterfall.

Starting at the first parking area on Raymondskill Road head past the warning signs and start down the trail, shortly you’ll come to a split in the trail near two large hemlock trees. The left hand trail heads down to the bottom of Raymondskill Creek and the right side goes to Raymondskill Falls. Heading down the righthand path the trail is steep in places and often slippery, you’ll come to another split, here the left hand trail takes you to the main viewing platform for the falls while the right side climbs the hillside to the upper portion of Raymondskill Falls. Mist and spray from the falls makes both trails wet so you should definitely take your time on the mostly stone paths. There is a second parking area a little further down the road that has bathrooms.
