High Falls Gorge is especially spectacular in the winter months. Come for a nature walk, and gasp at the spectacular ice formations on seven hundred feet of frozen waterfalls. Afterwards, roast marshmallows over a warm campfire and enjoy complimentary hot beverages. It is a truly unforgettable part of the Adirondack experience.
