USA/NY: Kaaterskill Falls

Kaaterskill Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls on the state of New York and is totally unknown and underrated. Situated in the heart of Catskill Mountains about two hours drive north from New York City, this stunning waterfall drops two tiers for a total of 260 feet (79 m). It is much taller then Niagara and is one of the tallest waterfalls in the eastern USA. There is a trail leading to the foot of the falls (currently closed) and another going down from the top and then ascending up (a lot of ladders and some scrambling).
