Hiking in Lewis County
New York State Parks
Whetstone Gulf State Park is built in and around a stunning three mile long gorge cut into the eastern edge of the Tug Hill Plateau. Some call the gorge one of the most spectacular scenic vistas east of the Rocky Mountains. This state park is worth a visit to explore.
The park has 56 wooded campsites some of which have electric, a scenic picnic area along Whetstone Creek, a man-made swimming area and trails for hiking and cross-country skiing, one of which circles the gorge.
The most popular hike within the park is the gorge loop. The hike is a moderate 5.6 mile loop.
* Located off NY 26, 6 miles south of Lowville, near Adirondack Park.
