Kaaterskill Falls
Photo By Elisa M. Shaw

  • Title: Kaaterskill Falls
  • State/Province/Region: New York
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Rt 23A
  • Nearest Town: Palenville
  • Brief Directions: Kaaterskill Falls is located on NYS route 23A, near Palenville and Haines Falls (NY 23A is most easily reached from Thruway - I-87 - exit 21). Traveling from east to west, 3.4 miles from the intersection of NY 23A and NY 32A in Palenville, is Bastion Falls and the start of the Kaaterskill Falls Trail at a bridge. Parking is 0.2 miles further ahead, on the left (south) side of the road. This point is 1.3 miles from the intersection of NY 23A and North Lake Rd. (Greene County Rt. 18).
  • Notes: This is the highest two-tiered waterfall in New York State. Its upper tier measures 175 feet, while its lower tier is 85 feet tall. The falls are truly spectacular, explaining the fact that this is a very popular area - one of the best visited locations in the Catskills. Don't expect to be alone here, unless perhaps you go on a weekday when it's raining. Don't miss Baston Falls at the foot of the Kaaterskill Falls trail as it provides a number of beautiful photo opportunities as well.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Gear: Hiking boots, tripod

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
