NY: Dutchess County-Dover Plains- Dover Stone Church Trail

A short path (about .5 mile) takes you to Dover Stone Church – a cool water cave with a waterfall.

Keep in mind the signs take towards it and the final sign directs you to the other hiking trails to the left not reflecting you are to go to the right for the cave.

Once by the cave, should you choose to enter, ensure you’re wearing hiking shoes and be aware that the rocks can be slippery and unsteady. notice the waterfall in the back and the sun peeking through the top.

Remember to turn around and also look from the inside out! Cool to take pictures both ways!

If you go, know that there is no parking for the site per se. Appears people park at the school just down the road. According to the Dover Stone Church site, Parking is allowable at Dover Elementary School (When School is NOT in Session) 9 School St, Dover Plains, NY 12522


I coupled this day with a walk at Innesfree Garden in Millbrook, NY.
