Buttermilk Falls County Park after Rain

Rockland Co.,
West Nyack
New York

Hiking Trails:
Buttermilk Falls Trail: Blue blaze

Total Time: 0:30 hour
Estimated Distance: 0.9 Miles

Pros: Scenic waterfall and view
Cons: Not a quiet and remote area

It had rained very much this past week, and I had taken off this day to spend time with family visiting from out-of-town, and we ended up at the Palisades Mall in West Nyack. I decided to leave a bit early and do this quick hike which is a five minute drive from the mall.

I parked in the Buttermilk Falls parking area, and took the Buttermilk Falls Trail up to the waterfall, which was flowing very strongly. (This waterfall can be only a trickle during dry seasons, so it's only worthwhile visiting during the wet season or after a large rain.) I continued along the trail afte the waterfall, arriving at the view on top of the ridge, which faces south and west. I then headed back along the same way.
