Watkins Glen State Park in New York is one of the most well known parks of the Finger Lakes region. Within two miles, the glen's stream features 19 waterfalls viewable from the hiking trails. The gorge trail features stone steps, and meanders past Glen Creek and the waterfalls and through Cavern Cascade, providing spectacular views that make this one of the best state parks. The South Rim Trail and the Indian Trail provide views of the gorge. Campers and day-visitors can swim in the Olympic-sized swimming pool, go on guided hikes through the gorge in summer, stay overnight in tent and trailer campsites, have lunch in the picnic facilities or do some fishing in nearby Seneca Lake or Catherine Creek, where in the mid-May you can find rainbow trout.

Gorgeous trail, went there during the end of the season (October). This specific trail is beautiful in fall. The hike is EASY! There isn't much to hike. We started at the upper entrance from George Trail and returned with Indian trail.
