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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

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.
