Watkins Glen State Park is home to a spectacular waterfall. Hike the Gorge Trail which winds 1.5 miles to varied views of this multi-faceted waterfall, sometimes underneath, through tunnels and across a stone bridge to 19 different cascade styles including staircase, dripping curtains, plunges and punch bowl. The Gorge was carved by glaciers and the undulating, striated rock is breathtaking. There is no swimming at the base of the falls but there is an Olympic-size swimming pool, picnic tables and camping available. Watkins Glen is one of the most popular of New York State Parks so try to get there early or consider visiting off season. There is an entrance fee.
