A new trail project will reportedly make it easier for visitors to view New York’s scenic Stony Kill Falls.

The Stony Kill Area Trail Project at Minnewaska State Park Preserve is creating a formal, sustainable hiking trail to provide safe access and views of the Stony Kill Waterfall. According to plans, the trail will include two footbridges, multiple stone steps through talus slope and a sustainable route up the steep slop to access the waterfall’s peak.

The Stony Kill area will be closed seven days a week to all users during the project, due to potentially dangerous conditions during construction.  The area will be reevaluated as the project progresses to determine if partial access will be allowed.
