I may be the first person on the internets to have a picture of this waterfall. Quite a nice creekwalk contrary to what ONE NYFALLS.COM says about it ;)

At first glance I thought it was Wagener Glen. But I know that's not it. It's a nice falls wherever it is!

It's quite a delight. Can be viewed roadside via tiny, tiny pull-off, but very tree covered so shots are impossible. You can creek walk to the crest from the top, or, like we did, went down to the bottom and creek walked up to the base. Delightful little creek, really beautiful waterfall. Land is abandoned farmland from the tax data I can gather, unposted.

Okay, where is Groves Creek? You're making me look bad here--not knowing my own back yard. :lol: ;)

That little pull off used to be a popular parking place, from what I hear. ;) Not that I ever engaged in such activities. Great find! I never explored that creek.

There's a waterfall off the next road south of there as well.

I actually think this one would be worthy of a profile - it's a wonderful waterfall and very nice creekwalk

I'm not sure of the status of the property at the mouth of the creek. I'm pretty sure that it's owned by the cottage to the right if you're facing the lake. I know he doesn't let people smelt there, but I'm not sure how he feels about hikers. He's a lifelong resident of the Wyers Point area so he would be able to clarify any ownership questions. Just PM me if you want his name and number.

indeed - we didn't enter via his property, we entered in the lot of 33 (per the Seneca County tax maps) which is unposted abandoned farmland...
