    The Fillmore Glen is a fantastic example of a well maintained NY State park.
    The Gorge trail was tough to get up to from the pool. Probably impossible for youngsters and elderly or out of shape people to climb the steep 200+ stone stairs to the trail. There is a driveway and parking extension to the top of these stairs.
    The trail proper begins with a nice straight, with the glen "pool" far below and thunderous sound of waterfall ahead.
    The Cow Shed rock formation was incredible and unique. Can't really see the waterfall from this vantage point, but not necessary. The gorgeous path continues down the dry creek (which probably swells up good during/after storms). A real sense of natural history and awe come to light. Steeps descend into the glen with trees growing sideways and natural water spills and rock drippings carve its way through.
    Very awesome and magical trail to take especially in early or late of day. Some parts I considered slippery and dangerous. Don't let kids or animals too far away from sight.

    Very nice family hike, couple of bigger waterfalls with numerous smaller cascades thoughout the gorge. On wet days there can be some tricky spots for smaller kids but a perfect autumn day family hike.
