Who needs the rocky coast of Maine when we have this kind of adventure in New York? If you’re looking for a rock-scrambling challenge that culminates in a vibrant gorge with a thunderous waterfall, look no further than this hike in Minnewaska State Park Preserve. Stony Kill, one of four major streams in the park, incises a deep crevice in the Martinsburg shale throughout this area, creating a stunning gorge riddled with massive shale slabs and impressive boulders. Here you have the opportunity to see layers of rock many millions of years old, revealed by the flowing water and glacial movement
