The Narrows, New York

The Narrows in May 2009

Watkins Glen is a beautiful set of waterfalls in the Finger Lakes region of New York. It’s just too bad the whole Gorge Trail wasn’t open when we visited in early May. Only the first third of the Gorge Trail was open, but we still got to see some great waterfalls.

The Narrows is a group of small drops that are forced through a very narrow gap in between the rocks that form Watkins Glen. As the water flows through The Narrows, it erodes the rocks into extremely interesting formations.

Directions:

  1. Watkins Glen State Park is directly off of NY-14 in Watkins Glen.
  2. Pay the state park entrance fee, and then park.
  3. The Narrows can be seen from the Gorge Trail.

Accessibility: 9/10 (easy)
Height: 6′
Length of Hike: up to 3 miles round-trip
