Don’t hike this in flip flops or even crappy little sneakers. You need Vibram soles. Im an experienced hiker (ADK 46er) and it was no trouble for me once I got a good read on the lay of the land. Initially followed the creek down and creekwalked it. If you’re not an experienced hiker, I’d say try Carpenters Falls in Skaneateles. Actually go down to Angel Falls (second set of falls). Gives you a challenge with you seeing what you’re getting in to. We used that as training for our first High Peak. Save this (Fellows Falls) as something to do with an experienced hiker or as a hike yourself if you are experienced.

Awesome adventure! Difficult to find all 5 waterfalls. Very steep climbs in places but quite doable. This wouldn't be a great place to take the dog if your goal is adventure the falls.

I don't understand why people keep going here when it is clearly private property.

not sure how other people got to the falls, but my dog and I opted for falling down a steep hill! luckily, no injuries occurred, but we got covered in ticks, mites, and mud. you need to create your own trail, so bushwhacking and love for the outdoors is definitely required! it's very beautiful once you actually get to the falls, but definitely take caution and be prepared for a lot of sliding and scrambling!

Really no visible trail path. The fall was great to look but the mosquitos were overwhelming so bring lots of bug spray.

My boyfriend had a great time adventuring. No trail that we saw. We kind of just climbed down the falls itself, but it probably wasn't the most safe way. When climbing up took the hillside on the left facing the falls. It was a pretty easy climb. I'd suggest going down that way (to the right of the falls when looking at the road) for a easier, safer route.

The other reviews in this thread are correct. 1.3 miles past the gps location there is a little parking area. The trek to get to the bottom of the falls was treacherous, but fun. Once we got to the bottom though there isn’t much to do but go back up. We decided to go up the hill instead of back up through the falls and take the road back to our car. There are very small trails that run through the upper ridges. But honestly, aside from some cool pictures I probably wont be back. It is a hard hike to get to the bottom and is very challenging, but it wasn’t anything spectacular.

Trail was rough as there wasn’t a trail. Waterfalls were pretty and it was definitely a workout!

1.3 miles to parking area was spot on. No visible trail to begin. Take the quick drop off in front of parking area and start hiking. Falls are right at the beginning. Go about 100 yards then you can start getting down towards the water. Rest of trail is roughly in the middle of the slope. You'll find it. Great hike!!!

If you put the address into your navigation system, it will get you close. Take Woodmancy Road 1.3 miles and there is a pull-off on the right. I have been described as a very experienced hiker, and this terrain is especially tricky. In autumn, wet leaves over crumbly shale on top of clay-like mud steep-sided ravine. I made it down and up without injury, but definitely requires skill, tenacity, and knowledge of how to traverse with multiple perils awaiting.

I couldn't find the trail but found a pull in spot on the next road over. clim down looked iffy so we stayed at the top of the falls as I didn't have much time. Still very pretty. I would like to find the trail to the bottom. I'm going to go again next weekend earlier in the day so any help would be amazing.

there is so much more than meets the eye with this Trail. I ended up not finding the entrance point at first, but discovered quite a bit of other trails and cool things as I scrambled around. The Falls are beautiful but can be a very dangerous place if you are not careful.

Great place, definitely not baby proof! Not the easiest trail but beautiful waterfall after waterfall. Start with the rocks by the culvert and just keep climbing down.

This is a very pretty trail with beautiful waterfalls. I am a little confused about previous comments, and where they entered. I did not enter near the first roadside waterfalls, I entered at a trail about a half mile or so down the road past that, where there is a second roadside falls, where there is a parking area for about four vehicles. Not sure if this is still Fellows Falls or not, but I would consider this an easy to moderate trail, if you stay on the trail. If you do not stay on the trail, which I would not suggest, it would be difficult.

Nice creek walk after the initial scramble down the rocks courtesy of the town. It is a little steep getting to the base of the falls, but someone has tied ropes to the trees, so no problem. Gorgeous!

I don't know who said this was easy as by far it's NOT. One fall u can see from the road and climb down the rocks if ur very adventurous. Then ur to walk down the road a bit and take a path that ends and u find ur way down a dangerously steep hill to see fellows falls. I did NOT make it down there my man did and dislocated his shoulder in the process. Wld love to know if there's a better approach to seeing this fall as it shld be very difficult NOT easy.
