This beautiful natural area is not cared for by Pa game commisision fallen trees block trails, picnic tables are destroyed and the lands are filled with homeless people needing shelter. Not a good place to take young children, very scary experience for my grandchildren

Shohola Falls are not that well known and not particularly high, but wonderful nonetheless. To get there, take Route 6 West from Milford. After driving about 15 minutes, you will approach Shohola Lake and a bridge crossing Shohola Creek. Before you cross the bridge make a left into a road with the sign for Shohola Inn and Cabins and drive 300 yards to a fork. Make a right at the fork and into a small parking area. From there you can see the lake and dam to the left and a short path down to the falls to the right. The falls are not high, but are broad and vigorous and you can walk over several areas where the flow is lower. The best viewing angle is to carefully follow a short descending path to the right which brings you around for a full head on view of these wonderful falls. Take care as there are no handrails and the path is narrow, but manageable. There is also a viewing area on the other side of the falls, which we did not visit, which can be accessed by driving back out to Route 6 and crossing the bridge until you reach another parking area. If you are visiting some of the falls in the Delaware Water Gap, if you have the time, Shohola Falls are worth a visit.

The Shohola Falls at Shohola Lake are not easily found, but quite remarkable. A lot of water rushes over these falls compared to others in the area. The trail is a little hard to find, but if you park in the state game lands picnic area by the Dam at Shohola lake and walk down to the dam, the falls are just downstream from the dam. You can see the falls on Google maps satellite view. There is a decently maintained trail, but we missed it after crossing the meadow by the dam. We were still able to safely get to the falls. Worth the time to find them.

Entered by mistake in lake parking lot after I missed the main entrance and entered on road for cabins. You can step ob the rocks and watch the falls, and wade in the water.

Short easy hike to a very pretty water fall. Several others within easy drives. Love this area of PA!
