A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

Cant wait to get home and get my photos edited and posted. An unknown gem at the southern end of Canandaigua Lake a mile or two from Ontario County Park.

So you visited a falls in that gully or you're suspicious there's one there? I wonder if there's a falls on the stream immediately north of that too? It seems to have a larger watershed.

I visited it with permission. I plan on making trips back down there in the next few weeks...and yes that is a larger gully. Seneca Point Gully is a bit further north and the largest watershed to Canandaigua Lake, and the FLLT owns part of that. Bristol Harbour owns the upper part of the gully and despite numerous attempts at getting in touch with someone there I have had no luck. I intend to check it out and go until I get to posted signs...or maybe there arent any?

Botanist Connie Tedesco will kick off the Otsego County Conservation Association’s 2010 nature walk series on Saturday, June 12 at 9 a.m. with a “Waterfall to Waterfall Walk” in the Town of Hartwick.

Hi Matt,
Here's a new one for Livingston County. I made a return trip on 8/4 to a very nice waterfall I first visited in 2008. I'm new to this discussion so I'll try to upload maps and pictures as best I can. The falls were disappointing this year because it's been so dry and the water flow was about one-fifth of what I remember (and by mud marks on the banks). It's an easy hike to the top of the falls but a treacherous descent to the base. If I return in the spring for more photographs, I will bring a climbing rope to make it easier to get down and back up. The falls are on Beards Creek which is northwest of Leicester, NY. To get there, drive to Geneseo, continue out (east) on Route 39/20A and then south through Cuylerville and to Leicester. Shortly after passing through Leicester, 39 goes up a hill to the left; you should bear right onto Dunkley Road. After the farm on the right, just past the guard rail is a pull-off where you can park and a trail that goes down to the stream. Turn right at the stream and walk downstream until you get to the edge of the falls. The descent to the base is on the right (facing downstream) and there is a trail which leads to the very steep slope covered with very slippery pieces of shale.
Coordinates of falls: 42 deg 46.525 min N, 77 deg 54.777 min W. In UTM units: 261696.19 mE, 4739993.40 mN
Coordinates of the turn-off/parking: 42deg 46.487 minN, 77 deg 54.891 min W
I could not get my GPS to work so these coordinates are from GoogleEarth.

Great photo and directions!

This is also discussed here...

I don't know if there is a way to get from the crest to the bottom of the gorge unless you hiked upstream. I went down a small trail off of Dunkley Road, it's only about 5 minutes long. It was an easy trail, but posted. According to a geology article I read it drops about 105 feet.

Sorry, I have been ignoring this part of the board as I was busy gathering shots and info for the website all summer. I'm going to be updating the database and map soon, as well as checking out on all the posts and photos i missed.
