  • This is a short hike, but absolutely amazing. The hike is through the water, so bring proper attire. There is a large log jam, which means a long line to get started, but you can go around the jam...

  • 8/8/22 Water hike still closed
  • Hiking through Oneonta is one of my most favorite memories ever. There's an abundance of beauty, peace, and bliss here. Pro tip: thi hike itself is very short but the rocks are very slippery and there are fallen logs that are scary and can be dangerous. So make sure you have the right shoes and are prepped for the trail. The water is super cold but you get used to it.
