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.

Easy hike back from hiking up the Watkins Glen Gorge Trail. Also note that the park still has signage for the 'Indian Trail', but on their park map, this trail is called the North Rim Trail. It's difficult to say whether or not the park renamed the trail and just didn't change the trailhead signs out on the trail.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
