Welcome

Bobbieswaterfalls contains a listing of waterfalls that I have personally been to. Nothing more! This website is something I created as a personal goal of mine. I not only cover New York State, but have other states as well. These other states will be listed as soon as I can.

I have comprised counties group by how I visit each region. I have Northern Region, Eastern Region, Western Region, Central Region and Southern Region. Within each region I have the counties. You can also click on the individual counties if you wish to.

I have recently transitioned over to this new website. There is still a lot of work to do here. I have started this website working with my most recent activities and working backwards in years.

Along with the waterfalls, I have included dams and rapids. I am in hopes that down the road I will set the site up and have then in a separate listing.

I have a resource page started and will continue adding more. There is also a page dedicate to other resources and links to them.

I generally have destinations in mind and will set up road trips and cover a lot of miles. Sometimes I come back with not much luck and other times come back with a lot to share. My goal each year is to find at least 30 waterfalls. Some years it happens and other years I have hit my goals and more so. My blog posts is usually done by road trips. Starting point to ending points. I will be starting that soon.

Again, I will also be listing waterfalls from other states. Seeing as I am from New York State, I am starting here first.

So feel free to check back often!

If there are any errors, feel free to contact me. The photos are all unedited and are as is. The information provided is to the best of my ability. I am not a professional photographer. I do some research on locations, but mostly it is enough for me to find the waterfall. If you are looking for more detailed information on waterfalls, check out the resource page. There is a lot of good information and write ups there.

The people and children you may see in some of the photos are my children, my grandchildren and friends and families. I started doing all this when my children were young and now have the pleasure of doing the same with my grandchildren. Gives me good reason to revisit some of the locations.

    Hi Bobbie: I just led a hike to Fairy Ladder Falls near Keene Valley, NY. Supposedly the highest major waterfall in the Adirondacks. 90 feet staircase falls, at 3111 feet elevation, according to Russell Dunn. Want pics and/or directions? (5 mile hike with 1/4 mile bushwhack).

    Hi Bobbie. I also stumbled across your website. We live next to Chittenango Falls area. Do you know if there are still places to find Celestine around the area and if so, best places to go with children?

    Bobbie, I stumbled on your site and am really enamored with it.Since retiring, My wife and I have become waterfall hunters in NY. We often take my Mom and sister (cancer survivors) along to see the sights. Just returned from Lyonsdale area of Lewis Cty- falls and autumn leaves were spectacular. Would share some pix if you wish. Great site, wish I could shortcut it so I can look up more places to go, there are so many! Darryl Merriam

      The whole moose river section from Fowlersville down to Lyons Falls is one of my favorites. If I can be of help, don’t hesitate to give me a shout. Thanks

    I grew up near Krystal Falls in Burnt Hills, N.Y. back in the 1930’s. I am the granddaughter of the late Charles Heckeler, once owner of the mill that was located at this falls. Back in the nineties I visited the restaraunt there, the site where we kids went swimming. I was looking for info. about my grandpa’s mill and possibly pictures of the area. Do you have any suggestions where I can locate this info.?

      Let me see if I can find some information for you. I am not familiar with the area and or its history. I may be able to get the word out and see what it brings back.
