Everyone In New Jersey Must Visit This Epic Waterfall As Soon As Possible
When it comes to waterfalls, New Jersey may not have Niagara, 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. I visit whenever I can to take photos…it’s always worth the trip. Even in the winter, the waterfalls offer something special.
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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
To see the falls up close, walk across one of the fantastic footbridges, providing spectacular views. Perhaps you’ll catch one of the falls’ famous rainbows. The waterfall is beautiful all year long and I absolutely recommend that you visit ASAP. If you want to wait until it gets a little warmer, watch this video drone video by Nicholas Ardino in the meanwhile:
