Everyone In New Jersey Must Visit This Epic Waterfall As Soon As Possible

We’re not known for our waterfalls here in New Jersey, but we do have a few stunners. Buttermilk Falls and Silver Spray near the Delaware Water Gap are favorites among hikers and Hemlock Falls really shines after a storm. The star of the state however is the Great Falls, located in Paterson. People are often skeptical of the city, but the falls are fairly separate from more urban areas and are easily accessible from Route 80.

To fully experience the falls, you have to see them for yourself. They’re spectacular in every season, but if you want to wait until warmer weather, enjoy this video by Outta The Way. Be sure to keep the volume low, the powerful, rushing falls can get a bit loud.

Have you been to the Great Falls before? Do you plan on going now? Did you learn anything new or do you have something to add? Let me know in the comments!
