“photo ops everywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Watkins Glen State Park offers not too strenuous hiking and incredible views. Every few steps there is another great photo op .Although there are camping facilities, we did not use them. There is no entry fee, just $6.00 to park. Stunning waterfalls-not to be missed.

“Wonderful walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

The walk down (or up) the gorge is wonderful. Ther are several waterfalls, The walkways are excellent and not difficult. As one would expect, the walk up the gorge is more strenuous than down. Make sure you bring a camera.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

What a surprise..this area is so pretty. Hiking trails are about 3 miles round trip, but be ready to climb steps when walking the trails, or use the outer trails, but still you will be walking uphill. Some people choose to start at the top and walk downhill then take a bus back to your car. Not sure what the bus schedule is, though. Beautiful waterfalls, and scenic views.

“Pretty walk with waterfalls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This was a very pretty walk on a paved path along the stream. You'll see lots of waterfalls. The path goes behind at least one of them, an interesting experience. It's not a difficult hike, although some peope may find the many steps a challenge.
