Snowshoe Hike to Kaaterskill Falls Viewing Platform

  • Mountain Top Historical Society Rte 23a Haines Falls NY United States (map)

Distance: Roughly 3 miles round trip

Level of difficulty: Easy to Moderate

Fee $10.00 


Come see Kaaterskill Falls in all her glory from the winter perspective. See how the waterfall and surrounding land become a winter spectacular. This snowshoe will depart from the MTHS campus and proceed along the KRT 1.5 miles to the Laurel House Road parking area. From there, we will follow the path down to the Kaaterskill Falls viewing platform. Once folks are ready to depart we will retrace our footsteps back up the trail to the parking area. Then we will follow the KRT back to the Mountain Top Historical Society. 
Folks wishing to participate on this walk need to bring their own snowshoes. At this time we do not have the ability to rent snowshoes but if this proves to be a popular walk we can look into snowshoe rental. 
If folks wish to come on this walk without snowshoes a pair of microspikes would be highly recommended for possibility of ice on trail.

What to bring with you.

- Snacks or a light lunch

- Warm clothes

- Dress in layers (Hat + Gloves too)
- Backpack
- Hand and Foot warmers

- Yaktrax or microspikes in case of patches of ice
