Watkins Glen State Park Travel Guide: 37 reviews and 90 photos

~The Gorge Trail~

The best views are to be had walking this trail from the Main entrance. It is a 1.5 mile uphill walk. If this is too strenuous, one can take the shuttle bus to the upper entrance and walk down. The views will be less dramatic though.


There are nineteen waterfalls that flow in a step-like pattern.


Water shaped this park. Glaciers covered New York state several times in the past million years. The receding glaciers carved out this gorge through the soft, sedinmentary rock.
