Kaaterskill Falls is the highest cascading waterfall in New York State – dropping in two tiers more than 260 feet.


One of the region's most popular destinations for centuries, this mesmerizing landmark has always captivated the hearts, pens and paintbrushes of poets, painters, film makers and photographers – becoming part of a larger, artistic folklore spreading from the Catskills to the rest of the world through works like Washington Irving's Rip Van Winkle, Asher Durand's Kindred Spirits and William Cullen Bryant's romantic verse.
 
 

While the falls are on public land, they can only be reached via the Kaaterskill Falls Trail, a state-maintained yellow-blazed path running 0.4 mile uphill from New York State Route 23A, the only road through the clove.
