The Indian Trail (aka North Rim Trail) at Watkins Glen State Park, New York, is a short 1 mile one-way trail that leads from the west end of the Watkins Glen Gorge Trail over to the suspension bridge and Point Lookout on the east end, which gives you a view of the gorge near the entrance to the park. You can use this trail mainly as a lower-trafficked connecting trail to head back east after completing the Watkins Glen Gorge Trail.
Along the route there are 2 lookout points - one gives you a view of Rainbow Falls and the other gives you a view of the Central Falls area.
if you parked in the south section of Watkins Glen, you can take the South Parking to Gorge Trail back to parking since the end of the Indian Trail connects with this small connecting trail.
Dogs are allowed on this trail, but you cannot bring them along the Watkins Glen Gorge Trail.
Biking is not allowed on this trail.
Hikers can park at the coordinates provided - located in the western side of the park. Hikers can also find parking at the southern entrance here: 42.372398, -76.874924 or at the eastern entrance here: 42.376313, -76.871369.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
