Beautiful waterfall located in Orwell New York. The hike to and from the falls is short and flat. The location is a little hard to find however it's worth the adventure. We tried to hike some of the other trails located at the park however...More

I had always heard about the falls but finally made it there. Gorgeous. Well maintained paths, clean and safe. Lots of people enjoying the area and respecting it. Make sure you bring your camera. Lots of beautiful pictures to be taken.

Hello, The trail has a couple of wheel chair friendly overlooks of the falls. The trail is not paved, but is a fairly fine crushed stone that should not impact your trip
