Exploring Watkins Glen State Park in NY
($10/car) (38F morning, 2.4 mile loop, 800’ elevation), mostly in stairs. We met Chris’s brother and his wife (Dan and Shanshan) in the parking lot. The main attraction here is a walk through the gorge along the river and waterfalls that carved out the gorge. The carved stone and waterfalls create a kind of magical environment. We started at the main entrance and went up and came back along the rim. This park gets extremely busy so get there early unless you like crowds.
