Kaaterskill Falls.

by Nicholas Lovett
(Berkeley CA)


The nicest waterfall I know in NYS is Kaaterskill falls in Ulster County in the Catskills. It's a two tiered waterfall with the upper falls 175 feet and the lower falls 85 feet. It's at the end of a short (maybe 1/4 mile) trail just off state highway 23A. It's very pretty, not too heavily visited (go one a weekday and you should have it to yourself), and has some good swimming holes in the river below the falls.

There Are So Many Waterfalls In New York
by: Waterfall Lover!

There are so many waterfalls in New York that are just as pretty as Kaaterskill Falls is, and some of them are very unique!


I could show you some fantastic ones. I even know of ones less seen and traveled!
