This fairly easy hike takes you to the highest waterfalls in New York State after the world renown Niagara Falls.

This beautiful hike begins along a busy road where caution should be heeded. The yellow-blazed route heads into a mixed hardwood and hemlock forest following a lovely rushing stream. The trail climbs sharply from the road offering several nice photo opportunities of Bastion Falls. The falls is a series of two drops with the upper falls crashing 175 feet and the lower falls tumbling 85 feet. Be sure to notice the aged hemlocks which are approximately 200 years old.

Directions: From Hunter, NY, At the junction of SR 23A and Kaaterskill Creek, parking is uphill to the west. Walk back down hill to reach the trailhead on the north side of the road.
