Beautiful trail that we did in early November... Cloudy, sprinkling snow and temps around 30... Beautiful scenery with stunning falls viewed from look-out decks high above the bluffs...
View of Canandaigua Lake, too!

This was a nice relatively quick hike up the creek bed. From my understanding the creek bed is on private property, but there was really not any signs posting so when I went. So I just went all the way up the creek bed.

The first waterfall is pretty close to the start and looks kind of like a water slide. You use ropes that are already there to aid climbing up. Not too far past that is the second waterfall. To the left of it are ropes to aid you climb up a very steep portion. Not to worry!! There are many hand and feet holds to aid as you climb.

I continued up through nice stream bed and some cool water formations. There were quite a few frogs the further up toward Seneca Point Road that I got. It will eventually split, to the left is a big culvert. To the right is a bit longer, but has some cool rock/water formations. Ultimately ending at a culvert as well.

I HIGHLY SUGGEST bringing water shoes so that you can wade through the creek. The cool water get very nice on my feet on the 80 degree day of which I went.

difficult to find the trail at first.....but mostly because of the fallen leaves, which made it pretty slippery... but the waterfalls were totally worth it.

Great hike. Dangerous and slip hazard. Taking a dog is not a great plan. Other than that, great for older kids! Amazing waterfalls!!!!
