So I read somewhere in BP magazine that there is a nice waterfall along this trail in Harriman. I am sure it is nothing spectacular, but does anyone know if it does exist? Is it worth a pass if hiking in that area?

Yes, a very nice spot. I don't have my map with me, but I think it's the Cascade of Slid.

I think that pic above is from Ga-Nus-Quah Rock.  No waterfall at the cascade of Slid, thats just a big rock pile on the sides.  That might be the "raccoon brook trail" waterfall, referenced in backpacker, but If it is, it's not on that trail, it's on the Pine Meadow trail.  

Maybe the route mentioned was pine meadow --> raccoon brook, but pretty sure you pass that waterfall while on pine meadow.  I don't remember ever seeing a waterfall on the raccoon brook trail, and according to the maps it doesn't look like there is anything like that on it, but i might be wrong.  I think i've only been on that trail two or three times.

yup, I found the article in my stash of maps. it is the Pine Meadow trail..near the Raccoon Brook Hills trail.

So, is it worth a pass if in the area?

sure, if there already it's a pretty spot.  Extremely heavily traveled though, especially on the weekends.  Most people start at the reeves visitor center and take the pine meadow trail up to a lake, the waterfall is about 1/2 mile from the lake or so.

Been hiking in Harriman for years and there is still so much to see. I'll have to check this spot out soon. It's probably nice and frozen right now.
Thanks.

Yeah my last hike in Harriman was here and it was a madhouse on that specific trail. Every 100 or 200 feet another person or people would come on by.

I saw four people, two dogs, and a black-capped Chickadee yesterday on three different western trails. Hit the trail @ 9:30 and walked off at 4.
