Hidden Falls About 1/4 mile
Tillmans Ravine 1 mile or 1/4 mile
Buttermilk Falls 30 yards from the road
There are three places in this immediate area that are worthy of a visit. The first
being Hidden Falls then there is Buttermilk Falls and there is also Tillmans Ravine
that is about two miles away and not part of the Delaware Water Gap National
Recreation Area, but instead is part of New Jersey's Stokes State Forest.
There are two ways to get to this area, one from Rt. 206 at about mile marker 121
take Struble Road follow to a "T" and turn right. Tillmans Ravine will be on your
Left. There are two Parking area with trail heads, I would recommend the second.
Continuing on this road will take you to an intersection with a graveyard to the Left.
Turn Left here and follow the dirt road for about two miles to Silver Spray Farm
The parking Area for Hidden Falls is about 100 yards on the Left and Buttermilk
Falls is About a half mile further on the bLeft.
The other way into Hidden Falls is from Old Mine Road in the town of Walpack.
Turn into the town and follow the road through the town and over the Flatbrook
River and then to a cemetery on the Right. There is an intersection there. Going
straight will bring you to Tillmans Ravine about 1 mile from the intersection and will
be on the right
Turning right at this intersection an going about 2 miles will bring you to Silver
Spray Farms (on the right). About 100 yards past the entrance of the farm there
will be a small parking area for about 2 or 3 cars on the Left.
The trail head is at the parking area. The beginning of this trail is not very clearly
defined so be aware. From the parking area follow the trail straight into the forest
for about 50 yards, then turn Left and follow a poorly defined trail as it slowly turns
to the right and crosses a small creek. By now the trail should be reasonably
distinguishable. Follow across another small creek and up a small mound. At this
point the falls should be visible. Follow the trail to the falls. In my opinion this is the
most beautiful falls in this park and in the spring when the Rododendras bloom this
is sight to see.
If you pass the Hidden Falls Parking Area and travel a little over a half mile you will
come to Buttermilk Falls, visible from the road on the Left. There is a Parking Area
on the right and a path and stairs to the top of the falls. The display changes with
rainfall so do not be surprised if the falls is dry after a week or two without rain. My
favorite time to see this waterfall is morning after a rain on the second week of
October when the Birch leaves that surround this waterfall turn amber.
Following the road will eventually lead you to a metal bridge that crosses Flatbrook
River. Turning left or right will bring you to Old Mine Road.
