Buttermilk Falls Park is on South Greenbush Road, just south of Rt. 59 and east of Rt. 303 in West Nyack. The falls are usually running during the spring and whenever there has been recent rain.
This time we're looking for trees with a blue mark.
It's a little steep here. Feel free to stop and catch your breath.
Dads, pick up the pace whydoncha?
We couldn't catch up with these guys!
From the trail we have a great view of the falls.
From the top we have a great view of beautiful... downtown Blauvelt!?
Another way to access the stream is to take the Rockland Center for the Arts (ROCA) nature trail. ROCA is at 27 S. Greenbush Rd., just north of Buttermilk Falls Park.
Walk across their lawn behind the building - Surprise!
Miss B: "Looks like a giant sandspur! Run!!"
It's a sculpture garden! We were lucky to see some cool pieces by blacksmith/sculptor James Garvey.
Can you guess what this is?
The entrance to the trail is marked by this sign:
The trail is dotted with improvised compositions made from natural elements!
Follow the trail toward the right until you hear running water, then, if you're so inclined, shimmy down the log.
Heard at the waters edge:
Miss B. is gettin' in too!
Are there any pike in this water?
Mom! He's taking off his shoes.
Yikes, this water's cold!
Mom! He's throwing rocks!
Get the dog away from the rocks!
Mom! He's drinking the water!
Hey I found a pink rock.
EWWWWWW!!! GROSS!!! What IS that??
Mom! He's splashing us!
I can't feel my toes.
I can't find my socks.
I had no idea I was gonna do this today!
