Details

Kaaterskill Falls is a two-drop waterfall located in the eastern Catskill Mountains of NY in Greene County`s Town of Hunter. The dual cascades total 260 feet, making it one of the higher waterfalls in NY, and of the Eastern US. Beginning with Thomas Cole`s first visit in 1825, they became an icon subject for painters of the Hudson River School, setting the wilderness ideal for American landscape painting. The Falls also inspired "Catterskill Falls", a poem by William Cullen Bryant.
