Parks and Recreation

SILVER SPRAY WATER FALLS, 40-50 feet, may be New Jersey's prettiest, free-falling over the red rocks of the Kittatinny Ridge through a glen of hemlock and mountain laurel. Silver Spray Falls is difficult to find, located along an unmarked trail leading from the gravel road south of Laytonsville. It is best to be guided by someone who has been there.

BUTTERMILK WATER FALLS, 80-90 feet, cascades spectacularly down the red shale face of the Kittatinny Ridge. It is the only waterfall in New Jersey, apart from Great Falls, with a developed viewing area: the National Park Service has erected an interpretive display and built a wooden walkway to the top. Buttermilk Falls is in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, alongside a gravel road south of Walpack Center. The Park Service does not advertise Buttermilk Falls, keeping the location a pleasant secret.
