This is a stunning park, a jewel of NYS. Some steep stairs, but making it to the top is a thrill. You are along side waterfalls and pools the whole way.

Home to one of the tallest waterfalls in the east. Flat easy trail from Route 89 up to the base of the falls (or walk IN the creek if its warm enough!) or do a more rugged hike around the top of the gorge, the RIM TRAIL. You can also drive right up to a stunning overlook.

Food Scene

From April to November: This is the BEST in the area and only a mile from our home, you can walk to it. Our beloved Chef Scott Signori passed away this winter, a tremendous loss. His team is reopening with a different model and we know it will be great. An eclectic interior with a great atmosphere; sitting on the deck is always a treat. Stay tuned on their website

This is an Austrian type Heuriger, they have great meats and their vegetables are always fresh and delicious. Vegetarians are always well taken care of too! Many "spreads" to go with their delicious breads. Beautiful indoor seating and outdoor seating. Great wine list and some lovely cocktails.
