It was almost ‘next to impossible’ to compose a shot that incorporated both the upper and middle falls. This was caused by the distance between the two, and a guard rail that was running perpendicular to the composition. That all being said, I still managed to get a fairly decent capture!
I have been researching waterfalls extensively in the Catskills, and my homework paid off with my first visit to this beautiful park!
Mine Kill State Park opened in 1973. It is named for Mine Kill Creek, which runs through a narrow gorge in the park and features the 80-foot (24 m) Mine Kill Falls. The park is located adjacent to the Blenheim-Gilboa Reservoir and its inflow, Schoharie Creek.
Mine Kill offers year-round recreation, including snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, fishing (trout and walleye), boating, hiking, mountain-biking, and swimming.
Among the park's 6.5 miles (10.5 km) of trails is a 3.5-mile (5.6 km) section of the Long Path.
