The Neversink River Unique Area, also called the Neversink Gorge, is 4,881 acres of beautiful land. It is a great place for hiking and fishing, but camping is not allowed.
There are a number of access points and trails. However, only the Katrina Falls Rd Access and the Cold Spring Road Access points have maintained parking and maintained trails. The other access points are difficult to get to. Also, there currently is no way to hike from the Katrina Falls Rd Access trails to the Cold Spring Rd Access Trails (and vice versa)
For more information on the Neversink Unique Area, check out the NY-NJ Trail Conference Map.
