This is a lovely gorge that doesn't see the numbers of people that some of the other state parks in the Finger Lakes do. The first waterfall, strangely called Cow Sheds, is imo, the best. It can be reached by crossing the stone bridge above...More

The closest to a supermarket is a store called Modern Market in the town of Monrovia a few miles from the park entrance. There are also a number of convenience stores, one right across the street from the park entrance.
