Hornbecks Creek Trail Partial Closure
The trail is closed between the first and second waterfall; a portion of the trail has sloughed off, causing a hazardous condition. The first waterfall is accessible from the 209 trailhead and the second waterfall is accessible from Emory Road.
Dingmans Falls Area and Road Closed
Dingmans Falls Visitor Center, the boardwalk trail to the falls, and the access road are closed through while repairs to the road are made. We anticipate the area reopening in mid-November.
River Access (Boat & Canoe)
The Middle Scenic and Recreational Delaware River is the main attraction of the recreation area. There are river access points about every 5 miles within the park.
Please note, pets and alcohol are not permitted at Milford or Smithfield Beach.
