Loc: in your backyard
Since there are sooo many waterfalls in the northeast that have escaped the "tourist trap" syndrome unlike Bushkill Falls in PA and High Falls Gorge in NY to name a few.

I was wondering whats your favorite off the beaten path waterfall hikes were.

Here's a couple of mine:

1. Adams Creek
Highlights: About a dozen or so waterfalls up to 80' in a deep Hemlock gorge.
Directions: 1 mile north of Dingmans Ferry Traffic light on Rt 209 in the Delaware Water Gap Park in PA. Hike up faint trail about 2 miles until you reach the 1st of many, after that it is steep going (mostly on the left side) No path beyond the 1st falls.

2. Glen Onoko Falls
Highlights: 3 Falls 40' , 110', and 30' The largest is a single drop.
Directions. Park in the Lehigh Gorge S.P. lower access lot just north of Jim Thorpe on the east side of the Lehigh River. Cross RR tracks and pick up trail about 200' from the bridge. Hike up and generally to left and trail bends right into ravine. Then trails goes straight up and crosses stream several times. The falls are bypass on the Right.
