A Note to All Waterfall Seekers

We have made every attempt to include only publicly accessible waterfalls in this guide.

Some of the waterfalls are on private property. We suggest contacting the landowner for permission to access the creek and/or waterfall. Remember, even if the land is not posted, permission should be obtained.  Many benevolent owners like to share their waterfalls. 

Waterfalls on private property may also be accessible from a public trail such as the Finger Lakes Trail. Please respect all lands, public and private by staying on the trail. Leave no trace of your visit and if you see litter from less respectful visitors, please pick it up.
