Top Waterfall Road Trips

The Great Northern Catskills

  • East Kill Falls – Located at a parking lot at the end of Stork Nest Road, the East Kill Falls trail is a hard hike that is 7.2 miles roundtrip and requires hikers to bushwhack within 100-200 feet of the falls. Wildlife sightings are common along the trail.

Haines Falls Region

  • Kaaterskill Falls – Located near Route 18, the Kaaterskill Falls trail is a short hike that includes two cascading tiers measuring 260 feet – the highest in New York State. Park at the Laurel House Road parking lot and hike to a viewing platform overlooking the falls.
  • Bastion Falls – Located on Route 23A, the Bastion Falls trail is an easy hike that is 0.5 miles roundtrip and includes three cascading waterfall drops.

Platte Clove Region

  • Old Mill Falls – Located along Josh Road (by a little red house) and 100 feet south of the King Post Bridge in Hunter, the Old Mill Falls trail is an easy hike that is just 200 feet roundtrip and includes a 16-foot drop waterfall.

Welcome to Spring & Summer Local & Hammo’s Events

22nd Annual TAP® NY – April 27-28, 2019

@ Hunter Mountain, NY

15 minutes to Hunter from Hammo’s

“Over the years, TAP® New York has developed into New York State’s largest craft beer festival in the number of brewers attending.”

“We’re not talking about big-corporation beer that comes out of huge vats in a 300,000 sq. ft. production plant. We’re talking about hand-made beer…. not beer that is rushed through the brewing process to get it on the shelf as quickly as possible, but beer with enough personality and genuine taste to be called “craft-brewed”. This is beer made with pride by people who truly enjoy a quality, flavorful beer.” (credit Tapny website)
