The Hike In New Jersey That Takes You To Not One, But TWO Insanely Beautiful Waterfalls

New Jersey isn’t known for its waterfalls but the Garden State does have some stunners… Paterson’s Great Falls, Boonton Falls, and Ramapo Falls are a few of my favorites but they’re pretty well spaced out. There are two more waterfalls I adore, though, that you can enjoy over the course of one manageable hike.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Head back towards Buttermilk after Silver Spray for a manageable hike that comes in at around 1.5 miles. To get to Buttermilk Falls (your starting point for this hike), head to Mountain Road in Layton.
