They are best viewed from The Finger Lakes Trail on the south rim.

Punchbowl Lake Dam does what the name implies, holding back a small pond called Punchbowl Lake.

The trail used to begin from a stairway that climbs above the old snack bar near the gift shop, but severe erosion has rendered it dangerous, and it is now closed off.

Ascending the 150 ft cliffs above the parking area (on the northern cliff) are the crumbling remains of the eastern segment of the Indian Trail.

Check this dam out when the water is high to see a photogenic man-made waterfall streaming from it.

Further west is Glen Creek Dam, which is almost completely filled with silt and stone.

Captain James Hope, a self-taught artist who once documented Civil War battles, fell in love with Watkins Glen in the 1870s and moved his portrait studio from New York City to this very spot in 1872. The stream bed was wider (before levies were installed), and a caretaker’s quarters and old mill stood where the parking lot is now.It was rebuilt shortly after with stronger concrete supports and bulkier steel. In 1983, the Timespell Light and Laser Show opened, allowing ticket-holders to pack the Stillwater Gorge (just downstream from Cavern Cascade). Since the gorge becomes pitch-black at night, the state sought ways of increasing park traffic and revenue for the off-hours (short of illuminating the whole glen).

The show illustrated the geological history of the Finger Lakes and Watkins Glen. You can see remnants of the light installations embedded in the cliffs of Glen Alpha.
