On Friday, July 24, 2015 a 28-year-old woman injured her leg at the base of Kaaterskill Falls. The local fire department and rescue squad were called to assist her. Injuries are considered minor, and she should recover fully.

On Sunday morning on July 26, 2015 another hiker was injured at the same spot. Local fire department and rescue squad was called to assist.

It should be noted the DEC is working on a construction project at Kaaterskill Falls. The region from the base of the waterfalls is closed to the top of the waterfall. This includes the region at the end of Laurel House Road. BUT, you can hike from Rt 23 to the base of Kaaterskill Falls.

There were also two brush fires in the region over the weekend.
