Land of Ice and Snow
A unique perspective on Kaaterskill Falls in southern Greene County, as seen from a short spur of the Kaaterskill Rail Trail during a mid-January snowstorm. Passengers on the Ulster & Delaware Railroad, now the site of the foot trail, were once treated to sweeping views of the falls from across the clove. Reforestation obstructed this beautiful vantage point for decades, until around 2016, when state officials created a clearing in the trees to restore part of the original vista. More viewing overlooks are expected to be cleared in the coming years.
