HIGHLIGH falls nature reserve
Columbia Land Conservancy (CLC) has with this relatively new reserve (I found a 2007 landmark that calls the reserve "new," so it's not brand-new, but it still has that new protected area smell). When you are somewhere near Philmont, NY (and, really, even if you don't), you should go to High Falls.
When I' m in Louisiana, Iowa, Maine, Missouri, Alabama, Florida, Delaware, Connecticut, Kentucky, Indiana, Maryland, South Dakota or North Dakota (to name but a few), I won't go to the trouble of looking for a cascade that's higher than High Falls. Coming from the car park (see "Directions" below), go to the well-marked newsstand behind the gate to find out about the place you will be visiting.
CLC already has a great hiking card available and there is one at the entry. Take the Green Track down the rocky stairs to the scenic wood walkway that leads you over a rippling brook. We continue along the Green Track to the Red Track crossroads. After the pedestrian bridge, it should take you about five mins. to get there.
They can also disregard the blue path that splits off to the south. This green/red crossing is well signposted with blaze and a shield that points exactly (and contra-intuitively) in both directions and says "TO FALLS". "Turn right onto the Red Trail for the largest (if not yet so big) ascent of the morning - over the next one.
It is the beginning of a bend and you will go back to this intersection after overlooking the cases. You will then be able to walk along the flames through beautiful forests until the Rote Pfad flows back into the Green Path. At this intersection, go ahead/right onto the Green Trail. Have you heard the cases? Actually there are two kinds of waterfalls - you will have a good view of both before we depart today.
On the Green Trail you pass an "OVERLOOK" signage and immediately reach a beautiful sandy beach with a bar. Go to the gate and enjoy the attractions and noises of High Fall. Those cases are really amazing. Once you have finished your checkout, take the Green Trail back to the Green/Red intersection just a few moments ago.
Keep right this year to return to the Green Trail. You will reach an intersection with a Blue Trail (the Upper Blue Trail on the map) in a few seconds, which splits off to your right, descending. Here turn right to take the Blue Trail to the sea.
As soon as you approach the sea, you can decide whether you want to take the Blue Track straight/left or U-turn/right. Not much going on on the lefthand side - the path ends in a moment in the stream. To the right to get upriver to the waterfalls. It embraces the rim of Agawamuck Crèek on the way to your second cascade of the morning (provided you haven't cheated and visited one before you came here).
Blue Track seems to end with the High Fall high around the edge. During my stay I saw a fella at the High Fall station anyway, and on Julian Diamond's photo you can see that he also made it there. Those who have created this path apparently tell you to turn around now without going to the basis of the cases, although there is no explicit placard saying so, so it is not 100% clear.
From here, let's go back and go back to the Green Trail/Blue Trail intersection. After leaving Axle Falls behind and climbing back up the mountain on the Upper Blue Trail, turn right onto the Green Trail to drive back towards the city. This is a more straightforward walk than the Red Way we took before.
Approximately a quarter millimetre from the Upper Blue Trail, just before you reach the boardwalk, you will see the Lower Blue Trail on the right. On the Lower Blue Trail you go back down to the rim of the river, but this times the look is at the garbage that the folks on the other side of the stream have thrown down the hills.
" Well, you know, Evan really loved this part of the trails, but most folks will find it a little antiklimax after all the other monstrosity you can see here. Follow the Green Track back across the pedestrian bridge, up the stairs and back to your vehicle. From Philmont/NY 217 take the Philmont/NY 217 turn-off to your right onto Rt. 217 W. In 2. 6 mile after passing through the hamlet of Philmont, just before leaving the city on the other side, turn to your right onto Roxbury Road.
There is a large and well-marked car park on the left-hand side of the road in 2 mile.
