A short descriptive guide from the 1930s with black and white photos of different parts of the park. Repairs are done with mortared limestone to keep consistent with the CCC-era construction and to blend in with the surrounding glen.
These photos show the concrete and iron style of walkways and bridges that existed before the CCC-era stonework. Located just beyond Jacobs Ladder at the end of the Gorge Trail, the New York Central Railroad Bridge was first built in 1877 and destroyed by the Flood of 1935.
The wide trail here allowed up to 400 viewers to watch a laser show projected a hundred feet high on the cliff across the gorge while music played and the surrounding cliffs and falls were illuminated.GPS/Locations: : (N 42.37028 / W 76.89696) Directions: From the Thruway, take exit 42 (Geneva/Lyons) and follow Rt 14 south, through Geneva, and continue south along Seneca Lake for 33 miles to the village of Watkins Glen. Winter weather damages the trails, and the Parks Department has to begin repairs in early spring to prepare for the gorge trails’ opening in May.The park entrance is in the middle of the village, to your right. Parking: There are three main parking areas in the park, but the main entrance is the best place if you will be walking the Gorge Trail. Substantial damage to the walkways can mean a delayed opening.If you both select each other, we will send you each others' email address the next day so you can set up a future date!
