Watkins Glen Park Logo Overlooking Falls

Watkins Glen State Park falls trail is an easy, 3.02-mile hike that takes you along many waterfalls in the gorge. Has spectacular photo opportunities behind the falls and a great place to go with family as the trail is suitable for all ages. Unlike Buttermilk Falls and Taugannock Falls, there is no swimming or walk area on the water. With COVID-19, the park and trails are open but the trails are one way around the gorge. Come from Spring to Fall as the trails in the gorge are closed during the winter months.

This place tends to be very popular and crowded, come early to avoid the crowds.
