Entrance to Watkins Glen State Park New York

Of all of the gorges in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, Watkins Glen, located in Central Schuyler County in the Village of Watkins Glen, is the most famous of the area’s parks. 

The Glen first opened in 1863 as a private scenic attraction.  It was purchased by the State of New York in 1906 and became a State Park in 1924.  In a short two-mile length, just like the steps of a staircase, Glen Creek descends 500 feet past 200-foot cliffs.  It has taken over 10,000 years for the Creek to sculpt the beauty that is the gorge today. Glen Creek flowed at what is now the top rim of the gorge.  It is the action of the creek upon the rock that has created the canyon. One can visit the 19 waterfalls, pools, cliffs and rock formations within the gorge by way of a winding 830-step path that ascends through the gorge winding over and under the waterfalls.

When the sedimentary rocks in this area surfaced, the pressure of the once buried rock was released causing the rocks to expand.  Evidence of this expansion can be seen in two sets of rock fractures.  Orthogonal joint set fractures are those at right angles to each other.  Examples can easily be found throughput the Glen.

“There is a serene
and settled majesty
to woodland scenery
that enters into 
the soul and delights
and elevates it,
and fills it with
noble inclinations.”  

~ Washington Irving ~

 

 

 

 

“I went to the woods
because I wished
to live deliberately,
to front only
t he essential facts
of life and see 
if I could not learn
what it had to teach,
and not,
when I came to die,
discover that I 
had not lived.”  

~ Henry David 
Thoreau ~

 

 

 

 

“Keep your faith
in all beautiful things.
In the sun 
when it is hidden.
In the spring 
when it is gone.” 

 
~ Roy Rolfe 
Gilson ~
