If you're looking for adventure, this is a good trail to explore. The Gorge Trail follows the Whetstone Creek about 1.5 miles back into an arm-width passage for views of a 20' waterfall. Over 350 foot stacked shale walls characterize the impressive interior of the gorge. Warm weather hikers are discouraged because of the continuous slippery rock hopping and creek wading. The 1.5 mile trek to the waterfall is actually disproportionate because of the ceaseless trail weaving. Cross-country skiing is encouraged. Retrace your steps for the return trip.
Directions: From Lowville, NY, Travel 6 miles south along SR 26 and the Whetstone Creek. Park in the day use area. The trail begins from behind the picnic area.
Elevation Gain: 100 feet
