If you prefer to explore the gorge with a guide, look for posters around the park listing times for tours offered weekly during the summer months.
Watkins Glen Cemetery (St. Mary’s Cemetery)
On April 10, 1912, Watkins Glen native Elizabeth Barrett Rothschild and her husband, Martin, boarded the Titanic in Cherbourg, France. A wealthy and childless couple, the Rothschilds were frequent travellers. Little did either know it would be the final journey for one of them.
Martin did not make it alive.
His body was buried in a mausoleum inside this cemetery that was built by his wife for him.
Rooster Fish Brewing Pub
Formerly known as Wildflower Crooked Rooster, it is a beer garden that serves the best-tasting Nashville hot chicken, bacon mushroom Swiss burger, steak and fries, pickled onion rings, kale salad, pretzel, blackened cod sandwich and more.
At the sake of not grossing everyone out, let’s just say that I used the washroom prior to the hike and everything turned out ok.
That being said We probably could have completed this hike a lot sooner if we didn’t stop every so often to take pictures. But honestly, how can you resist?
