Try to get there early because it gets crowded. It takes about an hour to hike to the falls depending on where you enter, it took us a while to find parking and then we just followed everyone else looking for the falls.
If you drive to the top of the Falls there is a viewing platform that enables you to see the Falls without having to climb up the steep slope. In addition, if you park at the at the bottom of the Falls, it is a...More
The weather was a bit cold but as we hiked it warmed up. The falls were slightly frozen. Some of the trail was inaccessible because of ice.
Hiking boots were essential for this trail. It was about 2.5 miles to get to the fall and...More
My daughter and I love waterfalls and at a spur of the moment on a very cold weekend we decided to head to the mountain. We went in and did the walk all the way to the bottom and then all the way to the...More
Had a chance to visit the falls during a road trip this past Summer and absolutely loved our time here. Lots of visitors but the falls are big enough to accommodate all. Plus there are several tiers to the falls and you can explore them...More
Yes, there are alot of stairs. They could be a bit difficult, all depends on the persons shape.
We encountered some icy patches as well so it could get a little risky as well.
Be safe. Enjoy.
Good central base for exploring Hudson Valley (9 Replies)
My daughter and I will be spending October 7-10 exploring the Hudson Valley area. We'll be driving out of NYC on the 7th and flying out of Albany on the 10th.

I've never been outside of NYC (we're from Texas) and so don't have any idea what to settle on. I found a nice Airbnb in Saugerties. Some things on our list to see, in no particular order yet, are the Walkway over the...More

I would break it down to 2 different locations. One in southern area like Tarrytown and then later in New Paltz or Kingston.

Kaaterskill Falls - accessible? (5 Replies)
Does anyone know if the route from the NY Thruway to Kaaterskill Falls is currently open, and if the hiking trail to Kaaterskill Falls is open right now? I am driving up to Canada on Thursday and would love to take a detour to see the Falls frozen over.

I don't know why 23A would not be open but I doubt that the trail to the falls is shoveled.
