Oneonta Gorge is one of the many wonders of the National Scenic Area. It is not accessible by trail. Rather you must walk up the creek bed, over a large and perhaps unstable log jam, through the gorge, and up to your waist in water until you finally see falls. Lower Oneonta Falls probably dropped just under 100ft in a backdrop surrounded by steep vertical-walled cliffs and fronted by clear pools. The water was so clear that I even noticed fish swimming amidst the submerged rocks.
Distance: 3.3 miles (5.3km)

The National September 11 Memorial & Museum, designed by architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker, is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The names of the nearly 3,000 people who perished in the attack are displayed on bronze parapets surrounding the reflecting pools.
