Back in the summer of 2012 I managed to fracture my foot. As my foot slowly healed, I started looking for an easy day hike in order to test out my progress. That’s when a friend recommended I go check out the Triple Falls in the Oneonta Gorge.
The Oneonta Gorge is actually host to several water falls. The Lower, Middle, and Upper Oneonta Falls. And then a little further up you will find Triple Falls. For my trek, I was focusing on the Triple Falls as I had not really heard anything about the Oneonta Falls.
The typical view of Upper Oneonta Falls from the bridge.
And here’s the view when you get down into the gorge and wade out into the water, er I mean very cold water.
Looking back at where I dropped off my gear.
Back on the trail, and heading further up towards Triple Falls.

Further up the trail, the creek is always close by.
I found a small opening in the creek and settled in for lunch.
A nearby frog watched me eat my lunch.
Roughly 2.5 miles up, the trail crosses back over the creek.
While there were some interesting moss covered rocks, It was time for be to turn around and get back to the car.
