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 will be closed through September as repairs to the road are made. We anticipate the area reopening in October.
There are numerous idyllic spots in the park for your grill and red-checkered blanket. Please observe the regulations listed below to help us in our mission to preserve our natural and cultural resources for the enjoyment of this and future generations.
Grills are not provided anywhere in the park, but you are welcome to bring your own. Ground fires are prohibited throughout the park. Do not bring wood from outside the park for cooking fires, or for any other purpose; it may contain invasive insects and other organisms which threaten the survival of local plant and animal life. Collecting wood in the park for fires is also prohibited, as even the smallest twig may serve as a critical habitat or food source for protected plant and animal life.
