If you love gorges, this trail is for you.

I got here pretty early in July, like earlier than even the admission office, so keep in mind that this place isn’t normally solitary.

Despite only seeing a couple of people, this trail smelled like cologne. The smell wasn’t bad…just misplaced.

The trail maintenance on this trail is phenomenal. I can’t imagine how some of these sections of this trail were built.

…especially this route.

Do all waterfalls sound like static on a TV?

IMPORTANT: This trail is closed during the winter season, November to April.

ADMISSION FEE: Keep in mind, there is an entrance fee of $8 (as of creation of this post).

Tip: Great thing about New York state parks is you only pay once. You do not need to pay again if you happen to visit another state park that day.
