Spend your Fridays at the beautiful Kaaterskill Falls in upstate NY! Bring your bathing suit or hiking both - or both! It's that kind of vibe.

Check the weather forecast here.

This trip is rated FAMILY-FRIENDLY. 

IMPORTANT HEADS UP: The walk down to the falls consists of over 180+ steps and approx 800 feet of elevation. Although you can descend and come back up at your own pace, please be aware of your physical abilities. You can skip this part and stay at the top of the falls. 

IMPORTANT HEADS UP: Guaranteed Departures require 5 or more guests. Invite 2 more friends for an automatic 10% off. Confirm number of guests for your date in chatbox below.

See General Trip Information below.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Your shuttle is expected to arrive at the first drop off by ~11am.

There will be 3 dropoff locations:
  1. Laurel House Trail Parking Lot here. At 1.6 miles, this is the shortest hike to the falls.
  2. If this lot is closed, you will be dropped at the Scutt Parking lot. At 3 miles, this hike still gets you close to the falls.
  3. And if you're in the mood for something a bit less strenuous and crowded BEFORE you get to the falls or if you've got kids, we suggest the Kaaterskill Rail Trail to the Viewing Platform and top of the falls. At 3.7 miles, it's almost the same distance, but 100% flat. 

Your shuttle will depart at ~3pm from the Kaaterskill Rail Trail parking lot.

ABOUT YOUR SHUTTLE

Updated June 2024

We work with 3rd party providers to ensure that your trip host has access to suitable vehicles for their trips. The rental fees for 3rd party providers are paid by each passenger, allowing your trip host to access vehicles easily and conveniently.

Your vehicles are 15-seat passenger vans with up to 460 cubic feet of interior space.

On occasion, your vehicle may also be privately-insured 7-seat minivans with up to 144 cubic feet of interior space.

Your vehicle is able to go places where larger vehicles cannot and are better suited for smaller groups.

The interiors of your vehicle will be cleaned and sanitized before every trip by your driver.

    If you have any questions or concerns about your riding experience, don't hesitate to ask using the chat box below. 

    FAQs

    Can I cancel my shuttle ride after I've reserved it? As you may already know, we have an awesome refund & cancellation policy and your shuttle fee can be refunded with advanced notice.

    However, if you change your mind on the day of your pickup; or you appear physically unable to ride in our vehicle (i.e. you're sick or intoxicated); or if your behavior is threatening or harmful to other passengers and you are not permitted to enter the vehicle by your driver, we unfortunately will not be able to refund you.

    And hey, it's OK if you do not feel comfortable for any reason, and we won't take offense.
