Tinkers Falls Trail is a 5.2 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Tully, NY that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Hiking up to Jones Hill from the waterfall is a workout, not very scenic until you get to the hang glider launch. Don't continue on to Spruce Pond unless you plan on backtracking, hitting the asphalt, or continuing on the FLT. BE PREPARED! I've done this on a whim with just one bottle of water several times and regretted it. Otherwise, Jones Hill and Tinker Falls by themselves are a great three-hour tour.
easy and fun nice falls good spot for a hot day
Nice trail and easy to follow.
For the out and back trail the beginning and end are pretty steep. Great views!
initially steep but well worth the view
tough hike with kids but you can go both behind and to the base of the waterfall
Steep hill but the view is amazing!!!
Technically, you are not allowed to mountain bike on any trails in the tinkers falls area. But, there is a hidden gem here for some downhill. If you park at the normal parking lot on 91 and ride down 91, take a left on Shackham Road and go up the hill. At the top of the hill, you will see a trail that crosses the road. Go left towards tinker falls. After a short uphill hike there is flat and decently smooth singletrack for awhile which then leads into a steep off camber trail which ends at the top of the falls. It's a solid 10 minutes of fast downhill, but be sure to have good brakes. Also, the corners on the steep hill are very sharp so be ready to slow down, and there are some logs down across the trail. I have never even seen anyone else on this trail, so I wouldn't worry about getting yelled at for riding on this trail.
Very steep on the part that we did. We didn't use the falls trail.
Steep and challenging but worth the view
very nice hike glad we started on the falls end then followed trail to hang-glider launch.
the trail to the overlook of the pond was butt busting for a bit and what a great hike, I'm going back for the falls trail.
Easy hike to the falls. Nice spot for a family. Not privet at all and lots of people. State has a nice crush rock trail all the way to the water fall and benches . Has alot of parking and all so handicap access parking as well.
