Dingmans Falls are named for an early Dutch settler and his family. Cascading over stair-step layers of shale, Dingmans Creek plunges 130 feet to create magnificent Dingmans Falls. The many fallen hemlock trees create habitat for residents of the ravine, and as the trees decompose, they also replenish the soil. Despite the acidity of the soil and the creek, many fish, including native brook trout, live in Dingmans Creek and can be seen in deep pools. The water power of Dingmans Creek attracted saw, grist and cider mills here in the 1800s, and the falls have been a tourist attraction for more than a century.
