Limited shoulder parking. A short but difficult hike to an outstanding wildnerness waterfall in a Tompkins County Unique Natural Area. The Trail is very steep and the approach to the waterfall is extremely slippery, impassable in high water or wet conditions. This trail is on private land with the kind permission of three different landowners. Stay on the trail, do not cross the creek, and hike gently to preserve our right to visit this amazing place. Closed after dark and in winter.
