WOWSERS :shock: Thats quite the falls! I once tried to visit these falls, but didn't venture up the creek as there were a ton of posted signs.

Hi Kim! Nice to hear from you again! I haven't seen those falls in so many years that I forgot what they looked like. We own a portion of that creek near the headwaters, about 4 miles upstream.

Wow! Brenda, would the owner ever give NY Falls permission for an outing?

The problem is that (I believe) there are multiple landowners involved. I'm not sure who they are anymore. I haven't hiked up there since I was in girl scouts (40? years ago). It would be a great outing! It's not something that I have the time to research right now, but if someone else wants to I'm certainly willing to offer input/assistance.

As I recall from when I was researching these falls, there are indeed multiple landowners.
