KAATERSKILL FALLS

Hike to an iconic waterfall near Palenville, New York with two tiers of cascades falling a total of 231 feet.

Climb a short trail up to the base of the falls, and then continue up to ledges at both the middle of the falls and the top. The full length of the trail going all the way to the top of the falls is only about a half-mile, although it can be steep at times.






The views are breathtaking and the power of the falls is awesome. At the top of the falls, you'll cross the water on a bridge and then continue on to a viewing platform for checking out of both tiers from above, plus the mountains beyond. The nearby towns of Tannersville to the west, and Catskill to the east are both great stops while you're in the area.







 

Accessible day trips & short adventures, intertwined with a little history & a big appreciation for strange landscapes & notable natural landmarks.
