||On Grimes Creek,
a tributary of Naples Creek and Canandaigua
Lake in Naples, Ontario County
Public access. The Finger
Lakes Land Trust and
Ontario County are in the process of acquiring
this wonderful place.
Take Route 21 into the village of Naples,
N.Y. Turn north onto Vine Street and
continue until it comes to a dead end and
a dirt parking lot with a small picnic area.
The parking lot is at the end of a residential
street. Please use consideration for the
neighbors when parking and using the picnic
area. Vine Street is marked and there
is a small wooden sign located at the
corner of Vine Street and Route 21 that points
to Grimes Glen.
||You can hike the initial portion of this
trail using the dirt path on the western side of the creek or you
can simply walk up the shallow creek. You will eventually end
up walking in the stream because the dirt path ends close to the first
waterfall. If you continue upstream past the first falls to
the second falls you will need to scramble up the hillside in
order to get the the third falls. We've been told there are still
more falls beyond but we've not hiked them.
||This is a well
known hike in Naples and publicly accessible. Like
all other hikes, we take plastic bags so
we can pick up the cans and bottles along
with questions or comments about this web site.
