GO WITH THE FLOW
Our unique geographic location, nestled in the Rondout Valley, flanked to the east by the Shawangunk Ridge, and to the west by the lower Catskills, means we are surrounded by many rivers, streams, and brooks flowing down from them.
Along their journeys, many of them possess some of the most spectacular waterfalls and cascades in the region, all of which are accessible to the public and located in our beautiful surrounding state lands, parks, and forests. Below are some of our ‘must see’ favorites.
BIRCHALL ROAD FALLS
FANTINE KILL FALLS
HANGING ROCK FALLS
Located off Rt. 209 in Napanoch, Lundy Road travels up along the Vernooy Kill and deep into the Vernooy Kill State Forest, which is well worth visiting and exploring. As the kill winds its way down, it gives rise to a number of beautiful waterfalls and cascades. Primitive camping is allowed, as are hiking and hunting. Further information can be found on the DEC website.
NORTH GULLY FALLS
The Peekamoose area is located in the Sundown Wild Forest. A firm favorite amongst hikers and outdoor lovers, the area boasts many streams and brooks flowing down from the Catskill Mountains into the Rondout Creek. For instance, the Peekamoose Buttermilk Falls, one of the best known and most popular falls, can be seen below. The falls location is also close to the famous Peekamoose Blue Hole, a very popular and well known natural swimming hole. Please note, in 2019, the DEC has stipulated that free day passes are required when visiting the area from May 15 – October 15 every year. Further information on acquiring a pass can be found on the DEC Website.
