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.
