Kaaterskill Falls is a beautiful double falls located in the Catskills. There are two parking areas, the lower one has the better views but required more trekking. We opted for the upper lot which was pretty packed. Took 15 min get a parking spot but worth it. A short walk brings you to the observation platform overlooking the falls.

An absolutely beautiful spot and a must see. It was a little crowded and parking was an issue. We parked at a lot on the main road and paid $20 for the day and walked in to the park. We thought it was worth it. The falls and fall foliage were breathtaking. The only other issue was the bathrooms. Overflowing, gross and not maintained.

We waited in line to park, just to park for over an hour! People parked along the side on top of the entranceway were all ticketed by police. Once we arrived at the waterfall the lines to take a photo had hundreds of people on it. After waiting for two more hours and barely getting any closer we left! Not worth it! It’s no longer a natural beauty, it’s been taken over and has become a tourist destination!

Love this place. Highly recommend to visit. We park our car at Scutt Rd headtrail parking. It was very easy to find in google maps. There are two bathrooms. 20mins walk to lookout point where you can see the upper Level. We got there around 10:30am on Wednesday. Some people followed covid rules to keep distance. Some people didn’t care. It’s a small area to take photos. You will get annoyed. We walked all the way to lower level. Took 1hr 20mins for a round trip including our time to take photos in mid level and bottom. We were there with my mom who is 77years old. Some stairs were steep but that area took only less than 5mins walk. It was not a difficult hike. Visit early.

There are many trails here, all with great views. You can hike to two spots to see the falls, one is an easy hike to a viewing platform that allows you to look down on the falls, and another is a more difficult climb down (and then back up!) a long set of stairs to see the falls from below. Worth it! There is also a longer trail to Inspiration point with spectacular views of the mountains and valley below. We hiked mid-week, but the trails got busy very quickly, especially by late morning. Most people tried their best to move to the far side of the trail when passing and to wear masks.
