Harriman State Park,
Rockland Co.,
New York

Google Maps of Parking:

This is one of the largest waterfalls in the area. However, it's not on the maps and doesn't have any official trail. However, there is an unofficial trail from the Suffern-Bear Mountain Trail parking at the Fire Tower area. This was a rainy day in the early fall. It wasn't actively raining when we hiked, but it was wet and slippery, as well as foggy and cloudy, making conditions somewhat difficult. However, with all the recent rain, the falls were quite strong. We took the short hike down to the falls and then came back along the same route.
