||About three miles west
of the northern end of Canandaigua Lake. It's just
west of Bristol Center off Case Road. It flows into
Mud Creek, a tributary of Ganargua Creek.
This stream is marked as
a New York State historical site but the gully is
private property. Responsible hikers who seek permission
first will usually be welcome.
||Approximately 30 minutes
||One hour or so. Fairly
easy to hike in the stream.
This gully is good for
beginners; it offers the variety of cascades and
falls found in other gullies but it is easy to navigate,
even hiking in the stream.
historical marker said there was natural gas in
the gully and it was not hard to find it about 100
feet below the falls. The smell of sulfur is fairly
strong. Take along a coffee can with the top
removed and some holes punched in the bottom. Place
it upside down over the vents where the gas is coming
out. Wait for a few moments and then you should
be able to light the gas coming out of the holes.
Be sure to bring the can out with you, along with
any other trash you might find.
