Whetstone Gulf State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Whetstone Gulf is located between two of New York’s greatest natural resources, the Tug Hill plateau and the Adirondacks. Whereas the Iroquois referred to the Adirondack region as the “Greater Wilderness,” they called the Tug Hill region the “Lesser Wilderness.” Settlers would eventually replace this misleading title, choosing “Tug Hill” instead. The Tug Hill area is made up of 150,000 acres of unbroken hardwood forest with many creeks, brooks, and streams. Gorges—sometimes locally called gulfs—are cut by these running waters, and Whetstone Gulf is a truly amazing example."
