Viewing Platform Improvements to Begin at Raymondskill Falls
Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area Superintendent John J. Donahue announced today that the viewing areas at Raymondskill Falls will undergo construction improvements starting July 24 2017. “Raymondskill is the tallest waterfall in Pennsylvania and one of our most popular visitor attractions. This project will allow park visitors to easily and safely access some of the most scenic views in the park,” said Donahue. The work is part of a 2-year maintenance project to improve trail conditions and visitor access at the 165-foot waterfall.
Construction of the lower platforms will begin first. That area will be closed for approximately 3 weeks- depending on weather conditions- while construction activities take place. Following the completion of the lower platform, work will begin on the upper platform and that area will be closed for approximately 3 weeks.
