“Significance: The tallest waterfall in Pennsylvania, cliff views, Pond Raymondskill falls is closest to the parking lot. You only have to walk about 0.2 miles down a semi-rugged hill to get to the main part of the falls. There are three tears to these falls and the trail provided to us by the national park will take you to the middle and top. The middle section has a viewing platform where you can see a good portion of the 178 foot waterfall. It is a great experience especially after a big rainstorm. Steps lead you to the top where you can get a limited view looking down. There is a great view from the bottom but no direct trail leading there. **FYI. Morning and early afternoon the sunlight reflects heavily off of the water making it very difficult to get a picture. Across the street from the Raymondskill falls parking lot is the trail head for the Cliff Trail. ”
