This short, challenging, off-trail hike leads through a stunning Catskills “canyon” dotted with multiple gorgeous waterfalls.

This trail guide features one of the most pristine and enchanting waterfalls nestled in the heart of the Catskill Mountains. As stewards of this remarkable environment, it is our responsibility to preserve and protect the area for future generations to enjoy. By adhering to the principles of Leave No Trace, we can ensure these waterfalls remain unspoiled for years to come.

Tips for leaving no trace at this location:

  1. Pack it in, pack it out: Bring a bag to collect your trash and dispose of it properly when you return home. This includes biodegradable items such as fruit peels and food scraps, which can harm wildlife and disrupt natural ecosystems.
  2. Leave what you find: Refrain from picking plants, removing rocks, or disturbing historical artifacts. This allows others to enjoy the natural and cultural features of the area, and helps maintain the integrity of the ecosystem.
  3. Practice responsible photography: Avoid sharing the exact location of the waterfall on social media platforms, as this can contribute to over-tourism and increased environmental impact. Encourage others to explore the beauty of nature in a responsible manner.
