A nice staircase type falls on the Vernooy Kill, just outside the town of Kerhonkson in Ulster County. Not very high, maybe 20 or 30 feet counting all the steps. It's a 3 mile hike round trip to see them, so it's worth it if you're in the area. We did these the same day we did Stony Kill Falls, which is just down the road, and over the ridge is Minnewaska State Park, which has a bunch of waterfalls. So, on a day trip, there's a lot to see in a fairly small area. We were there on a bright early spring day, clear blue sky and lots of sun for lots of contrast
This is a shot from the bottom of the three main steps
This is a shot of the upper two steps from the top of the second step.
There are the remains of a old mill or some type of building there as well, though its been a while so I don't remember exactly what it was.

In case anyone was wondering I believe you park at a lot located at 576 upper cherry town road in kerhonkson to fin these falls. i tried going today but it was super hot and buggy and kiddo was fascinated with running back and forth on one of the first bridges on the trail. We gave up. I wouldn't mind mtn biking on the trail to it either . Looks to start like double track but turns to ,ore technical single.

I remember it being mostly downhill to the falls, on an average woodland trail, I don't know how it would be on a mountain bike, or if that trail is even designated for mountain bikes.
