Location A man-made waterfall flowing from the Erie Canal into the Ganargua River, west of Palmyra, Wayne County

Public park, Palmyra.


You can get the best view of this waterfall from the Canalway Trail bridge over the Ganargua River. You can also visit Lock 29 which is on an island formed by the Canal, the diversion falls, and the Ganargua River. From the east end of the park, you can follow a trail along the old Erie Canal to the village of Palmyra (1/2 mile) to the corner of Church Street and Route 31 and see the only intersection in America with a church on all four corners.

Biking As of 1999, this spot marks the eastern end of the Canalway Trail which borders the Erie Canal from Palmyra to Lockport 80 mile to the west. This continuous trail is designated for biking, hiking, and cross-country skiing. Eventually, the trail will connect Albany to Buffalo.
