Hike Christman Sanctuary
New York › Christman Santuary Trailhead
Added by Rebecca Nichols
A gentle scenic walk with its 30-foot waterfall and several lesser cascades along the Bozenkill.
Starting from the parking lot you follow the Blue trail. Once you come to a fork you can choose which way you would like to start. I always bear right, which will bring you along the Bozenkill. Here you can take a quick trip along the yellow trail to the lean-to and base of the 30-foot waterfall. Also a well known swimming spot.
After relaxing a bit continue back to the Blue trail and follow it along the Bozenkill until you come to a stream crossing. Here you will cross and pick up the Orange trail.
Once on the Orange trail I always head right. Shortly this will bring you to the top of the waterfall you enjoyed earlier. Continue on the Orange trail until it returns you back to the stream crossing.
Now back on the Blue trail head right and enjoy some smaller cascades. Follow the Blue trail back to the original junction to return to your vehicle.
Please respect the places you find on The Outbound.
