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.

Before you leave...

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. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We 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! ✌
