We had a wonderful time. It is amazing what nature can do. Beautiful area along the fingers lakes. So much to do. Almost something for everyone. It all starts here at the "GLEN" and work your way along the lake. You can go up one side and come back down the other. If you have never been to the Glen YOU are missing a great time!

This NY State Park has it main entrance in the Middle of the Town of Wakins Glen, NY, if you go up the South side entrance of the Glen you will find a Olympic size pool and picnic area. The North side has picnic areas and a views and trials along the top ridge of the glen. As noted the main entrance is a direct walk into the glen gorge. The are many stairs if you stay in the gorge or you can take ridge trails along the gorge. One of the more senic sites in NY.

About 2,000 steps to go up if you travel the full gorge from dowtown to the top. You can also park at the top of the gorge and enter their but either way you going to have to go up at some time. The town end has some of the better views and you can walk under the waterfalls or go to the top of the glen and walk along the glen. You need to be in shape to walk the whole distance. The veiws are like no others.

The untouched beauty of the falls mother nature has created will surely take your breath away.. There are several trails to choose from all are very scenic and worth the hike.
