Description

These beautiful two-stage falls are the tallest in the state of New York. This is a historically significant location painted by Thomas Cole as well as other artists of the Hudson River School.

Short Hike: The falls are about one and a half miles from the nearest parking which is up the mountain from the trailhead. This does require a hike down the road to get to the trail. Use caution as there is no shoulder or sidewalk, and there are blind curves keeping drivers from seeing you.

Dry, Some Mud - Great trail to hike in early October. Beautiful foliage and some steep climbs towards the tops of the two peaks, especially Black Dome, but it gets windy so bring layers!
