This area is in a remote region in Sullivan County, along the Neversink River. I was in the area of Monticello and had some extra time to take a hike in the region. I did not realize how far it is to falls, so we just ended up going down to the side of the river at the end of the hike. We took the Blue Trail to the Yellow Trail down to the side of the river. I was disappointed how far down the falls were and how uneventful the hike was otherwise.
