Catskill Forest Preserve, also known as Catskill Park, was established in 1885. The park encompasses over 600,000 acres. It is home to the famous 260-foot Kaaterskill Falls, one of the tallest waterfalls in New York. Now a popular tourist site, it has been depicted in many early 19th-century books, paintings and essays.
