“The beautiful water falls of the Finger Lakes”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

What a wonderful surprise to discover the beautiful gorge and waterfalls in the area of Watkins Glen and Montour Falls. Travel along the east side or west side of Seneca Lake and visit the special wineries along the lake. Quaint restaurants, craft markets, waterfalls, hiking trails in and around the village of Montour Falls. Visit the historical route, Cook Mansion, the Library and the Museum. Wander down Main street, stop for a coffee and a snack in this old world environment.

Stand and gaze in awe of the magnificent Montour falls right in the center of the village.

A special place, nature abounds, you will be pleased you visited this special area.

“Great Hike”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We found out about this little hike on TripAdvisor. It was a pretty cool detour on our way up to Ithica. The hike isn't very tough and the views are awesome. If you are in the area make sure to visit Watkins Glen.

“Simply Beautiful”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

There's the beauty of the woods, gorges, and falls, of course, but they even have ice cream on site. Nice variety of walks.

“Great place to take visitors.”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is a must see anytime we have visitors from out of town. The various walking trails allow for different levels of physical fitness and fit into the natural landscaping quite well. Unless you are there when it is overflowing with visitors, it is a nice relaxing time.

“Beautiful Gorge & Great Camping!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We camp here at least once a year because we love it so much. The gorge is an amazing hike, park is clean and well maintained, and the campsites are great. Highly recommend visiting, whether you're camping or just a day visitor.
