Explore a time-sculpted shale gorge lined with stone stairs and crisscrossed by sturdy wooden bridges, to view one rushing falls after another. One of the gems of New York’s state park system, this Southern Tier favorite offers able-bodied hikers an adventurous walk along the banks of Stony Brook, with plenty of ups and downs as you follow the waterway through the park’s gorge. Very much a creation of the last ice age, both the brook and the gorge originated with the ice as it carved through the area’s ubiquitous shale, and then as it melted and filled the cracks with water.
