Hike

Waterfall Name – The name of the waterfall or gully or creek. We've listed the primary name found on USGS topo maps in the table but many waterfalls have local or unofficial names.
    means you can drive a car pretty close.
   means this page is new since our last major update.
    means that there is an animation or interaction on this page.
    means we're not quite finished with this page.

Location – Nearest town or lake

Height – Estimated height of waterfall. Where there are multiple waterfalls in a gully, the combined height and the number of individual falls are given. We usually do not count waterfalls of less than 6 feet and we frequently count steep cascades. Also, we usually overestimate the height. Where our estimate differs substantially from the height listed in the Western NY Waterfall Survey, the latter height is shown in [square brackets].

Drive – Driving distance and time measured from Twelve Corners, Rochester, NY 14618, using the Delorme Street Atlas quickest routing.

Hike – Approximate time it took us to complete the hike. We’re certainly not the fastest, but probably not the slowest, and generally don’t worry too much about how long the hike is taking. See the individual hike reports for more details.
