Waterfall

Witness Columbia Counties highest waterfall cascading 150 feet.

There is one parking area for this 47 acre conservation area.  There is a kiosk located at the parking lot which offers maps and information on the other Conservation areas.

You will start on the Green trail, this trail leads upward to a beautiful view of the falls.  I suggest when you reach the junction with the Red trail turn right.  The Red trail explores an upland forest which includes oak trees.  After 0.5 miles you will again reach the junction with the Green trail.  Continue on the Green trail to the overlook.  After enjoying the falls return on the Green trail (enjoying a hardwood forest and hemlock ravine) until you reach a junction for the Blue trail.  Taking the Blue trail it will lead you along the Agawamuck Creek back toward the base of High Falls.   You will then have to retrace your steps on the Blue Trail back to the Green trail to return to the parking area.

Loved It

Not a far walk to an awesome site. The green trail ends at a view looking down on the falls. The light blue trail lets you get to the base of the falls after a little rock hopping. I went early on a Sunday and was the only one in there
