Watkins Glen State Park is the most famous of the Finger Lakes State Parks, with a reputation for leaving visitors spellbound. Within two miles, the glen's stream descends 400 feet past 200-foot cliffs, generating 19 waterfalls along its course. The gorge path winds over and under waterfalls and through the spray of Cavern Cascade. Rim trails overlook the gorge. Campers and day-visitors can enjoy the Olympic-size pool, scheduled summer tours through the gorge, tent and trailer campsites, picnic facilities and excellent fishing in nearby Seneca Lake or Catherine Creek, which is renowned for its annual spring run of rainbow trout

We did this trail this summer first thing in the morning to take photos. It was a beautiful hike. Can't wait to go back.

We go at least once every year during the summer. The beautiful scenery make it worthwhile, and there are numerous paths to choose with different difficulties, so basically anyone can hike this!

amazing views, lots of sights to spur daydreams

beautiful u have to see it in person. easy hiking but fun to wonder around and climb and find cool swimming spots. camped was a blast

This place is really pretty with nice trails for hiking. We went in mid afternoon for a few miles of walking after going to a few breweries and distilleries to break up the day. The only drawback was the location gets crowded.

Nice hike, nice trees. The trail runs between two roads. Would go again.

Beautiful as always. Despite the drought there is still a decent water flow. Some congestion at several areas due to people refusing to share the trail but all in all people are friendly and courteous. Trail for the gorge is well maintained. I did not take the rim trail because I enjoy the gorge view a lot more. Several Pokestops and gyms if you're into that. Women's bathrooms was in need of some repairs. Several stalls don't have a door, just a shower curtain. Others the doors weren't working well and the locks were missing screws so they were just falling off. $8 fee that is good at any other NY park for the day. I love it here and come every couple of years. Trail is not strenuous but does get wet with puddles.

Very easy trail! Kid friendly. Lots of falls to see along the way.

Fun trail with a lot of steps!! Nice scenery!

A beautiful walk among waterfalls, cascades and otherworldly shale formations carved by ancient waters. Rock formations most visible in the fall when drier. Amazing!
