Buttermilk Falls County Park Information
Buttermilk Falls County Park only protects about 75 acres in southern New York, but thanks to the plentiful amount of parks it neighbors, connects to a much larger area of protection, totaling nearly 1,000 in just a few miles of trails. Likewise, hiking trails extend from the park into the other parks, which include Blauvelt State Park, Schuyler Town Park, and more. The Long Path travels just a few miles from Buttermilk Falls County Park, making it easily accessible from its boundaries. The park itself protects a section of the Hudson River Palisades on the western side, where a beautiful waterfall dozens of feet high come tumbling down into a deep rocky gorge. The park also features prominent overlooks where fantastic views eastward can be found by climbing up the relatively steep trails.
