Verkeerder Kill Falls is the highest waterfall in Sam's Point Preserve in the Shawangunk Mountains in the town of Shawangunk, Ulster County, New York. It is 187 feet (57 m) tall and is accessible via a three-mile-long (4.8 km) trail, part of the Long Path, which branches off from the main trail in Sam's Point Preserve. The waterfall is named after the stream. The waterfall may be viewed from the bottom or from the edge of a rocky outcrop; however, the only way to get to the bottom is to bushwhack. There are no fences along the rocky outcrops, which are higher than the waterfall is tall.
