Waterfalls of New York State 100+ Challenge, Dig the Falls, part 3, The Finger Lakes Region

Waterfalls of New York State 100+ Challenge, Dig the Falls, part 3, The Finger Lakes Region For more information on this challenge click here To purchase “Waterfalls of New York State”, click here  To purchase “A Waterfall Guide to Letchworth State Park” by Scott A. Ensminger and Douglas K. Bassett, click here

The following list is the third set of locations listed in the book “Waterfalls of New York State” by Scott A. Ensminger (Western New York Waterfall Survey), David J. Schryver (Northern New York Waterfalls) and Edwards M. Smathers (Dig the Falls) Be sure to check them out! I myself have personally contributed a lot of waterfall location information to both Mr. Edward Smathers and Mr. David Schryver. I am currently a team member with “Dig the Falls”. The simple rules of this challenge, is to visit 100 waterfall locations in the book. One location may have several waterfalls, but counts as one location. Click on the links (I have visited) in the boxes below, which will take you to additional information pages.

Please refer to “A Waterfall Guide to Letchworth State Park” by Scott A. Ensminger and Douglas K. Bassett, serious Letchworth State Park is a region of it’s own!!

Side Note: as I am putting this all together, I have additional photos that I never uploaded, my bad!

Stone Valley Cooperative Recreation Area Road Trip 5-23-2015

This took me some time to put together. These locations are now published. Click on the links for more information.

The following links are great resources

The Stone Valley Trail, Colton, NY

American Whitewater Stone Valley: Colton to Brown’s Bridge

Tracking on Wikiloc for Stone Valley Trail

STONE VALLEY TRAIL with WATERFALLS

This is the parking area to the start of the trail. Also the put-in for the whitewater rafters.

Home » Stone Valley Cooperative Recreation Area Road Trip 5-23-2015 » STONE VALLEY TRAIL, PARKING AND TRAIL START

 

From the parking area, there is a small trail on the left side that leads down to the dam and the top of Colton Falls.

COLTON DAM (STONEY VALLEY TRAIL)

 

On the trail you will come to a sign in register. This area is referred to as the “Whitewater Excitement”

COLTON FALLS 5.0 (STONEY VALLEY TRAIL)

Hamilton, Saratoga County Waterfall Trip 5-10-2015

This was a wonderful day for a road trip. We had 12 locations planned. We accomplished 10, and by passed two based on time. The round trip travel was approximately 257 miles. Two of these locations are revisits for me and the others are new to me. We met up with a young Lady and her daughter at Whiskey Brook and they followed us along to Austin Falls. I wished that I had grabbed her name. Also at Austin Falls there was a couple of young guys that were planning on kayaking the section, but we had a mission for the day, and moved on. I still have to get together the rest of the information on these locations. They will be posted soon along with more pics of the falls.

Whiskey Brook Falls, Hamilton County, New York

This is a roadside waterfall.

The Rifts, Hamilton County, New York

Could not locate anything for this one!

Christine Falls, Hamilton County, New York

We were unsure of accessing this waterfall from the power plant road. The gate was open, but there was posted signs everywhere. I jotted the number down, tried to call to get permission, but hello.. no cell reception!! We did find this from the Route 8 side. You could see a trail, as well as parking here. However, you could also see that it was posted, even though the posted signs were well worn and barely readable. I will wait and get formal permission for access.

Smokey Hollow Falls and Black Creek Reservoir (Historical) 5-2-2015

The following were locations that I wanted to check out and see what I would find.

Smokey Hollow Falls, Herkimer County, New York. This small waterfall is located in Smokey Hollow, and I am not sure of the proper name. There is no access to get down in as it is posted, roadside view only.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Black Creek Reservoir is located in Herkimer County, New York. The property all around this is now posted. The landowner took the time and walked us in to this and was telling us that the dam was taken down about 12 years ago. He also did confirm information regarding a small waterfall further upstream, and suggested I go back and he would take me to it. I took a few extra photos of the area as I was impressed by the fact that where we were standing once was completely all water.

The photo above the gentleman stated that all the way to the tree line in the background was water.

The above is all that is left of the dam.

The next couple of photos is a couple of locations I wanted to check out and they were really not something great.

I was also passing by Prospect Falls, and grab another photo. Every time I am in this location I can never hit it when any volume of water is flowing.

Prospect Quarry Falls, Wilmurt Falls 5-2-2015

Today was another eventful day!

Our first stop was Prospect Quarry Falls located in Herkimer County, New York, yet access from the Oneida County side.

I had visited this location before but was actually up on the bridge, viewing down on it. This is way more beautiful up close.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Wilmurt Falls is located in Herkimer County, New York There is a small park here, but the road and access is heavily posted. We had to park down the road, just off on a seasonal highway and walk back up to the bridge.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Information not yet posted. I am getting way behind, but in the meantime having fun!

Guppy Falls, Onondaga County New York 4-29-2015

Guppy Falls deserved a post of it’s own. This is located in the Skaneateles Conservation Area. There is a kiost at the parking area, with large map, as well as you can pick up a paper trail map of the area.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There is two different trails to access the falls. We chose to take the streambed in to get to the bottom of the falls. The other trail leads you up a set of stairs and to the above overlook. This took us about 30 minutes to walk into the falls.

The first thing we noticed was the uncountable number of eggs in the streambed. We only seen one frog!

Road Trip to Rensselaer County, New York area 2/23/2014 Day 2

Our first stop on this, was to go back to Mount Ida Falls. We had stopped here the night before, but it was to dark to get any good photos.

In doing so both the night before and this morning we drove passed Burden Falls and the others on Wynants kill.

The result in the turn back of this allowed us to see Barberville Falls which was not on the route plan. In doing so, we ended up straying from the rest of the plan and by passed some of the stops.

If it were not for my personal goal here, some of these falls I would not otherwise stop at or would not make the trip unless bigger and better was in the area. The pleasing part of it all, is they are marked as done on my list.

Day 2

Mount Ida Falls Rensselaer County Eastern New York  Aka Poestenkill Falls, High Falls, and Wire Mill Falls

This is a small park, that is in dire need of some safety repair. The railing were broken. The small platform for the overlook was rotted and my foot actually broke thru and I quickly got off it. You could tell there is a lot of activity in the park for sledding. The steep hill made it for some awesome sledding.

Eagle Mill Falls Rensselaer County Eastern New York

If I am back in this area, I will stop by here and see if there was something I missed. Resources state there is 4 to 5 feet cascades here. Again, snow can change the look of everything.

Barberville Falls Rensselaer County Eastern New York

Barberville Falls was the highlight of the entire trip. This is a definite return to in warmer months. The majority of your walk is from the parking area on Route 40 up to Blue Factory Road and the trail head is right there on the left as soon as you cross the bridge. The trail takes you right to the top portion of the falls. From there you take the steep trail down to the bottom. There are signs for warnings of the trail.

For this one, we parked before the bridge and walked up the road to the small dam. So the photos show what I seen. Plans to return either in the spring or early fall. The main falls is under the bridge. There are more cascades, and a larger one below.
