I am 66 and not 26 so my view is different than most people. I hiked the gorge 08/27/15, the temp was 63 but getting sunny at 11:30am. I read reviews from muliple sights and hiked prepared. I had good hiking boots and light quick dry wind breaker but a cotton t-shirt, light hiking shorts. I took a water proof... More

Quite literally the prettiest photos I've ever taken have been here. In the summer, wading through the gorge it exhilarating. and it's SO GREEN!

this place is beyond belief and my family has hiked it many times -- if you've never been, this is a must see !! go about noon or 1 or 2 pm on a day that it's set to be about 90 degrees or higher -- that's the best climate for experiencing the water, and the falls . .

This was a really, really cool little hike. As best we could figure, this is not really a trail so much as a hike into a river bed. At least thats all we could find. We hiked about 80 yards in where a bunch of logs had jammed up the nearly dried up river bed. You have to hike through... More

We took our 6 months old Corgi there and we loves it. We only hiked to the middle Oneonta fall. The lower Oneonta fall was so amazing! It was in May so the water level still high. We will definitely go back when the water level is lower.

I went camping with some friends and this hike was the highlight! You walk down these steep stairs into the gorge. You hike in about ankle deep water at first...but the further you go, the deeper the water and the more logs and rocks you have to scale. The whole time you feel like you are in another world and...

Absolutely amazing!! Plan for a few hours and be ready for an adventure. Walk along the short trail and into the stream. Move forward through the beautiful gorge and take it all in. Beware you must be prepared to climb over a log jamb and wade through chest high waters but in the end it is amazing! Get to the... More

We were on our way to my little sisters wedding and stopped for a few minutes to take in the beauty of the falls. Don't get me wrong, this is a GORGEOUS area and the falls are amazing....however, in just 10 minutes our motorhome was broken into and over 20K$ of possessions were stolen. Cops didn't even bother to come... More

You'll miss the primary falls, but there is a trailhead a short walk west (across from some paved parking spaces) that takes you up the gorge and lets you experience the wonder of the river and other falls for several miles (and about a 1500 foot rise). On a clear Saturday there were a number of families on the trail... More
