March 20th – the first day of spring!
Everything is starting to melt, trees are budding, and the weather is warming up. With everything melting it’s a great time to go see waterfalls because they will have more water running over them than usual. One park in the north east that is known to have a bigger waterfall in the spring than in other seasons is Thacher State Park.
Thacher State Park is famous for its Indian ladder trial. This is where you can see 2 waterfalls and walk behind them. The trial follows along a cliff so make sure to stay on the trail. There are stairs to climb at one end. There is also 25 more miles of trails for you to explore. There is no fee to hike at Thacher State Park, just a $6 parking fee. For later in the season the park has cliffs for climbing and suspended adventure courses in the trees.
