Watkins Glen State Park
|Photos by Terri Prepelka
Watkins Glen, famous for America's first road
racing track, also shows off a spectacular gorge and a series of cascading waterfalls. Glen Creek has sliced through hundreds of layers of sedimentary rock, exposing a series of ledges that make up the unique canyon walls. The gorge is narrow and seldom sees daylight. The gorge's microclimate remains cool and moist, providing excellent conditions for ferns and mosses.
