While getting a permit in requires a little work, the incredible waterfall into Neversink pit offers a view like no other.
Neversink Falls – Trip Details
Since the Stephens Gap Callahan Cave Preserve property was bought and established by the Southeastern Cave Conservancy in 2014, the preserve has been using a permitting process to control access to the preserve.
Once you and your group is approved for a permit, you’ll need to place it on your car when you’re visiting. You can park on the side of County Road 30 or the parking area inside the rock wall along the road. Be sure not to block any gates where you park.
Unless you’re an expert at vertical rapelling, you can take the alternative entrance into the cave to get some shots of the waterfall from the interior of the cave as it falls into the pit. Check out the cave map here.
Entrance 1 comes into the pit a little over half way down, and there’s a nice pedestal that will let you pose in front of the waterfall and the pit. There has even been a wedding in the cave here.
You can request a permit from the SCCi on their site.
