Hiking Waterfalls New York

A Guide To The State's Best Waterfall Hikes

Book Description

From the top of the Adirondack Northway to the precipitous drop that creates Niagara Falls, Hiking Waterfalls in New York State provides all of the information readers need to find their way to waterfalls hidden in the crevices of the Catskill Mountains, high on the faces of the High Peaks, flowing through magnificent gorges into the Finger Lakes, or deep in the backcountry of the Southern Tier. Detailed driving and hike descriptions include slices of history and  glimpses of geology. GPS coordinates, maps, and color photos of over 100 of the state's best waterfalls make certain that hikers and sightseers will find their way to these sparking gems, whether they can be seen from the roadside or at the end of a lengthy trail. The book has less than 10 percent overlap with FalconGuides' popular Hiking New York.
