Take leaf peeping to the next level with fall fun on the Delaware River. Travel north on route 209 for an hour and a half to Kittatinny Canoes, Inc and start with a river trip. Canoe, kayak, or raft down the Delaware for unmatched views of the autumn leaves. Kittatinny also offers an opportunity to fly through the trees on a 3,000-foot mountain zip line. Ride solo or race a friend; you’ll reach speeds up to 60mph!
Milford's Black Bear Film Festival
In the afternoon, travel 15 minutes north to celebrate the arts. Milford’s Black Bear Film Festival is scheduled in October — peak fall foliage time! Expect workshops, film screenings, panel discussions, and more at the annual celebration.
Grab a lunch in Downtown Milford, which stands out against a backdrop of autumn leaves. Bar Louis at Hotel Fauchere is a chic spot for good food and drinks. Driven by culinary extravagance, Hotel Fauchere also offers luxurious lodging.
When evening comes, take a walk to a waterfall! The central color fall foliage zone is home to many of the Pocono Mountains’ most iconic waterfalls. The trails to Dingmans Falls and Raymondskill Falls (tallest waterfall in the state!) are relatively easy and appropriate for children. Bushkill Falls is another top spot for waterfall viewing. Take a look through the Fall Foliage Map to find more waterfalls to explore.
Unwind in a historic home. Just steps from the shops and restaurants downtown, Milford’s Harrington House Bed & Breakfast is an 1860s charmer with a wrap-around porch!
