“Kaaterskill falls and Howe Caverns”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

If you like hiking and outdoors adventures visiting the Catskills is the place. The Kaaterskills falls is a must to see as well as the Howe Caverns. I went with a group of 46 people with Hines tours; which I highly recommend. All inclusive transportation leaving from New York City to the falls, food, lunch, snacks all included on the price. also the entrance to the Howe Caverns.

“Incredible!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

The falls are absolutely breathtaking in any season! The hike to the falls is a short but scenic. You first pass Bastion falls which is gorgeous by itself. The remainder of hike is relatively easy with few steep sections. When you first catch a glimpse of Kaaterskill, all you can say is wow! A giant two tiered waterfall standing 260 ft tall, they're about 100 ft taller than Niagara. As I said, the hike to the falls is relatively easy. To climb the falls is another matter. It's possible, but extremely dangerous! I almost learned that the hard way! Got really cool pics though.. Also great to check out in the winter, the ice formations are gigantic! One of the coolest places I've ever been too! Check it out but be careful! Bob

“Great stroll through the woods”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I loved this little hike. It was a little difficult to find the trail head, but well worth it at the end. We hiked up a few different falls off of this trail and each one was beautiful. The hike is fairly short and the end at the main falls is breathtaking. I would recommend this to anyone in the area. I also read that it is close to the same height as Niagara Falls!!!
