Easy boardwalk path to a couple different beautiful waterfalls. The climb up the stairs at the end isn't worth it as the better view is at the bottom of the waterfall. Great for kids and inexperienced hikers.

I accidentally came in through the back of the park, technically 'off trail' because my GPS sent me to the wrong destination but I rather enjoyed the views increasing in beauty. Ending with the main water fall, which is absolutely breath taking, was perfect for me.

From the main entrance of the park, it is a very simple 'boardwalk' path which leads you directly to the main fall (where I spent half of my time soaking in the beauty). From there, you have the option of walking up stairs which winds you to the top of the falls; this part of the trail wasn't too bad and offered multiple resting/viewing areas.

I visited during the week in the spring (unsure of date) and the park was very much uncrowded.

Easy access is the best description here for this simple trail which is basically all boardwalk. Silverthread falls you are almost at instantly and it is a very unique waterfall being so tall and so thin. The remaining trek to Dingmans is less than a mile again mostly on boardwalk. Dingmans is very impressive in terms of size, flow and also unique with its angles drop at the bottom. If you want to add some elevation you have the option to take stairs up to the top of Dingmans it provides various vantage points and doesn't take too long, plus it helps get the heart rate up from a largely flat smooth trail. Another very busy place in the DWG parking fills up quick and you may have to loop around a couple times to get a space.

I've only started hiking recently and have not had an opportunity to visit very many trails, but so far Dingmans Falls is my favorite. The trail is easy and the boardwalk leading to the fall is wonderful. Hiked down to the creek as well and it was nice and easy. Very peaceful and lovely.

It's a great in and out for kids. Has steps to get to the top of the big waterfall, all the rest is a boardwalk system.
