On Route 30, watch for the sign that says Mine Kill Falls Overlook. Pull in and park, and take the 1 minute walk to the overlook! Breath-taking view of a natural wonder!

1/1/17 My wife and I had an enjoyable and invigorating First Day Hike at Mine Kill. No eagles this time but a happy group of First Dayers, stimulating conversations and stunning views of the Schoharie Creek, the surrounding hills and the Mine Kill Falls. We walked to the base of the Falls and marvelled at the imposing cliffs above us and the rushing water being deposited into a temporary pool before continuing its journey .
On 1/1/15 I wrote: This year has begun with eagle sightings as we took a First Day Hike at Mine Kill State Park in the beautiful Schoharie Valley in the county of the same name. Our trail guide was amazed at the nearly 60 of us that showed up because only 2 years ago, one couple who was present showed up. Parts of our hike were on the Long Path, a trail that begins in Ft Lee NJ and extends through the Catskills and into the southern part of the Adirondacks.
The cost of running the park must be underwritten by the NYS Power authority as there is no fee to enter.

We visited the park after the main season so did not get to see the pool complex but we went to the picnic area by the water and to the water falls. The falls are worth while specially if you can walk to the bottom, not very easy.

My husband and I were out for a drive when we came upon his park. I read some reviews and we decided to stop. It's an awesome park with something for everyone; Olympic sized swimming pool, playgrounds, picnic areas, boat launch on the reservoir and hiking trails, one that leads to a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole. And if that isn't enough, it's all free to use courtesy of the power company. Beautiful park on a beautiful day.
