Kaaterskill Falls located across the river in Palenville is the highest two-tiered waterfall in New York State. The upper tier measures at 175 feet and the lower tier at 85 feet tall.
The water levels this time of year are high and you can see this spectacular view, however, in the late summer the water flow can reduce to a trickle.
Take NY Route 23A West through Palenville for about 3 miles through a sharp hair-pin turn. The parking lot is on the left. Be careful walking along the shoulder of the road as you head to the trail and be sure to wear good hiking shoes.
