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 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!
