A Teaser of What's to Come
About This Image
Watkins Glen State Park in New York celebrated its centenial as a park in 2006. It's the most visited location in the Finger Lakes area, boasting 19 waterfalls and more than 800 steps in the paths around the gorge. (And about a 500 foot elevation in the process.)
The reason for the title? In the winter and early spring the park is closed as the ice makes the paths treacherous. On our first visit last week this 'teaser' was the only visible indicator that this is a gorge to definitely hike . . . but the trails won't be opened til the end of May! We were able to walk across a suspension bridge, 83 feet above the narrows that lead to this final waterfall at the edge of the town of Watkins Glen.
