Finding Waterfalls

Creating Your Own Adventure by Russell Dunn In the Spring 1997 issue of Kaatskill Life (a quarterly magazine devoted to the Catskills), I wrote an article entitled “Hunting for Waterfalls.” Little has changed since that piece was written.

A Map of New York State Waterfalls

Not just A map, but THE map!! The New York State Waterfall List v2.0 has officially been released, but it comes with a strong warning. This IS the most comprehensive list to date (including the hidden “Private” locations), but it still has its flaws. NOTE: This map has been moved! Here is where you can help! There are over 1,650 POI’s shown on this map (almost 2,300 total POI’s, including the posted locations)! If you click on any of the points […]
