Watkins Glen State Park is located in New York State’s Finger Lakes region along the shores of Seneca Lake. Its home in the small village of the same name is well known not only for the popular park but for Watkins Glen International, one of the country’s most famous automobile road racing tracks.
The park offers dramatic scenery centered around a stream running through a narrow, deep valley (or glen). The valley is surrounded by rocky cliffs stretching 200 feet up from the valley floor. The formation of the glen created 19 waterfalls to enjoy on your walk along the park’s Gorge Trail. You can also view the scenery from the Rim Trail above.
