Fort Montgomery and Popolopen Creek


blank dot

Popolopen Creek, also called Popolopen Brook, is a approximately 10.4-mile-long stream, fed mainly by Lake Popolopen, Mine Lake, Stillwell Lake, and Weyant's Pond, eventually draining into the Hudson River. It runs mainly through West Point and ends in a gorge between Bear Mountain and Popolopen Torne, officially called Hell Hole and popularly known, somewhat interchangeably, as Popolopen Gorge. A new footbridge crosses the creek at Fort Montgomery.
