Sheldrake Creek

Postby hobkyl » Mon May 17, 2010 6:03 pm

These are a few of the falls along Sheldrake Creek on Cayuga Lake. To quote Champy and his find of Oak Tree Falls...
"I may be the first person on the internets to have a picture of this waterfall." or falls for that matter. These falls are located on private property and persons wishing to view them should seek out permission before hiking to them. There are a few more falls in the area however due to lighting despite hiking in at 6am I wasnt able to come up with anything worth posting.

Yeah there is a house directly above that point in the creek...imagine some kid lost his ball. This whole creek is very untrashed (no beer/pop bottles, or other junk you find in the well traveled creeks around here) with exception of car parts from years past and the occasional basketball lol.
