Button Falls Trail is a 0.5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near West Edmeston, New York that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and nature trips and is accessible year-round.
This waterfall is more of a roadside stop than a hike. But well worth the stop for sure. It is on posted land so enter at your own risk. At the fork in the road take a left and park next to the bridge. You can see the bridge from the fork in the road.
Looks like a beautiful spot, however, No Trespassing signs are abundant anywhere past the bridge. I'd say it's not worth getting prosecuted and/or shot at.
views were beautiful. 3 waterfalls total. you have to climb down a rope to get a view from the bottom of the 40 foot falls so we opted out of that. it was also really hard to find. we drove by it 3 times before we actually found it. it's unmarked but you can tell where it is because there is a little pull off right before a small bridge. you can hear the water from the road. there is a clear trail at the pull-off to walk down and get a view of the falls
I access the water fall on Button Falls Road just before a bridge (which I parked on the side of road). From the bridge you could see the small crest (about 5 feet) the leads into the large fall (about 40 feet). To see the larger fall you need to go down a small path alone the bridge (facing west cross bridge go down left hand side). What is nice about this is the access to the small crest which you could get your feet wet. Hard to see full Falls due to leaves. Not much of a hike about a hundred meters, also bring bug spray. Will try to gain access to lower level of Fall by hiking up stream (if possible).
