Watkins Glen State Park

Watkins Glen, New York 14891, United States

Created By: Diane Lebo Wallace


Known for its natural beauty, the Watkins Glen State Park features a series of waterfalls and gorges with an almost two-mile hike passing 19 waterfalls and ascending over 800 stone steps. The glen's stream descends 400 feet past 200-foot cliffs.

There are a number of small trails leading off of the Gorge Trail, giving way to a number of other outdoor activities close by the main trail. There are tent and trailer camp sites, swimming pools, picnic facilities as well as guided tours of the local topography.

The entrance to the park is right on Main Street in Watkins Glen.
