The Deer Leap Falls is the third waterfall located in the George W. Childs Recreation Site, Pennsylvania, United States. It is located downstream from the Factory Falls and Fulmer Falls on the Dingmans Creek.

Silverthread Falls

  • Silverthread

Silverthread Falls along the Dingmans Falls Boardwalk Trail

Whereas Dingmans Falls slides down a sandstone face, Silverthread has sawed its way through a narrow fis- sure of the same formation to reveal a cross section of the lower Pocono Plateau, with its many twisted and folded rock layers.

Carrying much less water than Dingmans, Silverthread can be a trickle most of the year.

Factory Falls

  • Factory Falls

The Factory Falls is a waterfall located in the George W. Childs Recreation Site in Dingmans
It is the first of three falls within a few hundred yards; Factory, Fulmer and Deer Leap Falls.

 

Raymondskill Falls

  • Raymondskill

Raymondskill Falls is the tallest waterfall in the state, and only 4 feet shorter than Niagara, Raymondskill Falls has always been a tourist attraction. The 100-footlong rectangular mound surrounded with weeds near the turn off from US 209 is all that remains of the former Hotel Schanno. To get to the falls, exit the parking area to the right of the restrooms, and walk down the gravel path and stairs about 400 feet. There are two viewing platforms: one near the head of the falls, and one at a large step that divides the upper two drops from the lower. Each divide in the falls indicates a harder sandstone layer that separates softer layers below. Adjacent to the lower drop is a thin horsetail cascade exiting from a ledge surrounded by rhododendron. This cascade flows only during and after a good rain.
