Hiking to Kaaterskill Falls

kaaterskill falls

Kaaterskill Falls near Hunter, NY, located on the ancestral land of the Lenape, is the tallest waterfall in the state of New York at 260 feet. Yes, even taller than the world-famous Niagara Falls.

There are two paths to get to the waterfall. 1st option: Drive all the way to the Kaaterskill Falls Viewing Platform parking lot and make your way from the top of the falls to the bottom of the falls. 2nd option: Drive to the parking lot off of 23A and make your way up from the lower trailhead starting at the base of Bastion Falls. It doesn’t take more than 20 minutes each way to get a view of the waterfall. My favorite way is to hike up from the lower trailhead to get the view of BOTH tiers in all their splendor. And this is precisely what we did for the first Latinas Who Hike meetup I organized with Joy from Part Time Exploradora and Susie from Latinx Project. See more photos from the event below!
