Ever want to get through an outdoors obstacle course? Then this is the hike for you! Be prepared to navigate through logs, climb through rocks, and wade some freezing cold water. The views at the end are breathtaking, and the challenge makes the hike that much more fun. It is full of people, but it can be fun to share this little adventure with others.

Not a review, but a question? Would anyone recommend a wet suit for this trail, or is that stupid? We are going in a week!

This trail was really confusing for us, we had never been before and we stopped at the sign that said Oneonta Gorge Trail. The hike was beautiful, but it was just over 4 miles and it did not lead to the gorge pictured here. We kept on following the map on this hike and it said we were going the right way. Needless to say, 4+ miles in and we were not at the gorge but we saw triple falls and some beautiful scenery on that hike.

The actual Oneonta Gorge in just past that. You'll know you're in the right place if you see a big wooden tunnel, and you have to head down the stairs to get to the water. We ended up doing both and it was beautiful either way.

Wished it wasn't so crowded. Going to try and go when it's warmer. So the water isn't so shocking.

This is a must go place! I almost did not go this past weekend because I heard it was closed from flash flooding. However there were a lot of people and the water only went up to my waist (I'm 5'3) at the deepest part. Very pretty!

The most beautiful gorge trail ever. It's best in summer with water at decent temperatures. Avoid carrying electronics/phones as water gets deeper near the fall.

such a fun and unique trail! you'll know you're in the right place if you see a major log jam. i would not jump in the water at the waterfall at the very end though--it's freezing cold!
