South Parking to Watkins Glen Gorge Trail

0.8 Miles


Dogs (leashed)

This short 0.8 mile out-and-back hike takes you from the south entrance parking lot down to the Watkins Glen Gorge Trail. You can also connect with the Indian Trail at the end of this one as well. Follow signs labeled "Gorge Trail" to find the main attraction.

We followed the trail over the suspension bridge, then down the Indian Trail to the Point Overlook. From Point Overlook, take the stairs down to the Watkins Glen Gorge Trail.

Dogs are allowed on these trails, but not the Watkins Glen Gorge Trail.
