NY: Catskills region- Kaaterskill Falls

Tropical Storm Elsa had just passed. For me that meant it was time to chase waterfalls!

Located in the Catskills mountains, I heard of Kaaterskill Falls and how crowded the hike had become since the pandemic with the parking overflowing necessitating strict rules be put in place.

Fortunately this was a weekday and I was on a mission!

As I started the hike from the lot, the towering trees made me think I was in a storybook fairytale expecting a gnome to peek out at any moment.

The hike to Kaaterskill Falls is short to the top and then you can take a trip to the bottom!

Getting to the bottom does require a bit of scrambling as well as a walk down an uneven stone staircase. Also keep in mind that when wet the surfaces are quite slippery.

I think those gnomes were around on this day in July after the storm as they perfectly placed an everlasting rainbow at the foot of the falls.

I read from an article the following “If you visit on June 19, keep an ear out for the ghostly barks of a dog said to haunt the spot ever since leaping over the precipice on that date in 1868. “
