While there are many great outdoor destinations in the Catskills, like the impressive Kaaterskill Falls, many miss the hidden waterfall in Woodstock, New York.

Located just off of the Tinker Street, the main road through this quaint town, is Woodstock Waterfall Park. This tiny park isn’t more than 10 feet wide and 50 feet long but offers one of the most serene scenes in town.

Woodstock Falls is located in the heart of this quaint town.

That’s because this spot offers a great view of a small waterfall on Tannery Brook. Since it seems to lack an official name, I’ve dubbed it Woodstock Falls. However, if you know of a more official name, please let me know.

The waterfall is surrounded by homes and businesses, which makes Woodstock Waterfall Park the only place from which it can be seen. However, the views from here really are quite nice.

Even better, since it’s located right in town, the best view of Woodstock Falls is accessible to everyone.

Other than the falls, there isn’t much to the tiny park. There are a few benches and a sign that offers a bit of history of the area on the side of a building. Not surprisingly, the star of the park is the view of the waterfall.

While Woodstock Waterfall Park is a hidden gem in Woodstock, New York, it’s not the type of waterfall that’s worth driving a long distance to see. However, if you find yourself visiting Woodstock or passing through while in the Catskills, this is a great spot to visit.
