Skinners Falls


Photo of  Skinners Fallls

In 1764, Daniel Skinner took the first raft of timber down the Delaware River. As a result, he became famous in the area and the falls near his home in Mialanville became known as Skinners Falls. The Skinner family also operated a private ferry nearby and a sawmmill in Pennsvylania. In the early 20th century, a local group proposed building a bridge across the river; it was completed in 1902. For details on the bridge, which is currently closed, select this link.

Skinners Falls is a popular spot for tubing and rafting. The rapids are about 1/4 mile long and range in difficulty up to Class II. The rapids are south of the public access area on the eastern (NY) shore at the Milanville/Skinner’s Falls Bridge. Next stop downriver is Narrowsburg, about 5 river miles downstream.
