We did this hike but kept going to Sunset Rock and Inspiration point and then looped back to our parking on Scut Road. The falls were beautiful but if we planned it again we would’ve gone on a less busy day or opted to do a bigger loop around the lake instead of checking out the falls.

Great hike...hit the trail early on the weekend because the trail Head lots will fill up and the trail itself will be clogged with people. Overall a beautiful hike....had gone after a night of rain and the Falls were raging!! Looked up info on Frank Layman and his sacrifice for the residents of Kaaterskill Clove...very interesting story. Trip can be extended with a trip down the escarpment trail to inspiration point

Amazing experience! If you’re driving up the mountain, there is a parking lot 200 yards past the trail head for about 20. Plan the time to picnic and swim in the catch pond at the base of the falls.
