NY: Hudson Valley-Red Hook- Zabriskie’s Waterfall

After a rain storm I like to chase waterfalls. Having visited most of the largest in Connecticut, I expanded my circle to the Hudson Valley. This one sits within Bard College in Red Hook, NY.

Per Hudson Valley Magazine :

A short walk on a defined path along the Sawkill Creek at Bard College takes you to the top and bottom of this fall.

There is a second large waterfall approximately 0.2 miles farther down, just before the creek reaches the Hudson River. Follow the trail along the creek to get there.

Tropical Storm Elsa resulted in several inches of rain in the area in a short period right prior to these photos. The water was simply roaring!

Directions: From Red Hook, at the Junction of Route 9 and W Market St., head northwest on W Market St. for 1.8 miles. Turn right onto Route 9G N and continue 0.9 miles.

Turn left onto Kelly Rd. then right onto Annandale Rd. Stay right and continue another 0.4 miles on Annandale Rd. Turn left onto Blithewood Ave. and park in the large lot on the left in 0.2 miles.

Park and walk to the south end of the parking lot to find the trail that follows a service road. Bear right at the small building and follow the path to the creek and falls.
