This is a gorgeous waterfall. I would access it from the top. Follow signs to North Lake/South Lake
Coming in at 260 feet, Kaaterskill is the tallest two-stage waterfall in New York, and the steep ascent to get there is made of 620 stone stairs that will challenge even the experienced hiker. Be careful when climbing this trail as the rocky steps are very slippery when wet.
If you’re interested in going a little further and incorporation a hike I Highly Recommend Kaaterskill Falls. (One of the highest waterfalls in NY)
Impressive Waterfall! Can take your pick of the easy way or the hard way for seeing the falls from the top and/or bottom.
This is one of the most popular hiking spots in the Catskill mountain region. It's about a 45 minute drive from the tiny house. You can hike the trails or just observe from different look-out spots along the road.
“Nature/music/education center in the woods, with frequent events like the "Hoot," summer and winter.”
“Great diner. Fun scene. Outdoor seating Memorial Day through Indigenous Peoples Day. Not the usual fare.”
“Windham another Catskills Premiere Ski resort with Ski Tubing and relaxed atmoshpere.”
“Tube rides down the Esopus River! It’s 10/15 mins from us In Phoenicia and is super fun! ”
“It’s not about the journey with this one: It’s about the destination. You’ll walk uphill along a gravel road with power lines the entire way -- not quite the bucolic getaway you traveled all the way from the city for. But you’ll hit the first cool landmark after about 2 miles -- the ruins of an old hotel from the area’s heyday as a resort destination ). A climbable fire tower (which you should definitely scale) is a half mile further. Follow the trail a little bit longer for a jaw-dropping cliff edge view of the Catskill Mountains and Hudson Valley. Told you it was worth it.”
