We took forge trail which is the main trail in for seeing the falls. Very beautiful. No dogs allowed on this trail... I can understand why. Not overly busy, we were even able to grab some shots with no on in the photos. Trees turning...More
This Park and gorge were beautiful! Walking the 1.5 mile gorge with 832 stairs was daunting for myself and my friends....all 65 and above..we took a few breaks here and there after climbing several sets of stairs but it was worth it..the falls are beautiful..there...More
If you love nature, you MUST go here. The waterfalls were amazing. I will admit there are A LOT of STAIRS! But there are plenty of platforms to take a break. Make sure you wear your hiking boots and a light rain jacket. You will...More
I can't recommend this park enough. It does get crowded and backed up as people stop to take photos, but it's all worth it. The cost to park in the lot is extremely reasonable ($8) and there is no actual entrance fee. The multiple waterfalls...More

I must say overall that gorge is awesome. Just returned and disappointed in the foliage, no color, pretty much bland. Some locals think it’s coming and others not so much. I based my visit off of the ILOVENY website. Area was to be near peak....More
I've visited over 100 countries and I found Watkins Glen incredible. I visited on a slightly rainy midweek afternoon in October, so it wasn't too busy. The smell of the pine and earth, the fall colours, the rock cut walkways and the pounding falls were...More
The Park is open all year, with the shuttle only on weekends after Labor Day. Some areas or trails can close due to bad weather, usually for a day or two only. I would call ahead once you're in the area just to be sure.
