Beecher Creek Falls

Postby hobkyl » Sat Oct 13, 2012 10:45 pm

Beecher Creek Falls is located in Edinburg, NY along the northern side of Great Sacandga Lake. It is roadside and is just upstream of a covered bridge that is now used for pedestrian traffic only. A neat stop if in the area. Other sources claim this falls is about 20' in height.

Very nice picture and find! Looks like a place you go and unwind from everyday life. Thanks for sharing.

Stumbled upon this one today. No tripod with me unfortuantely, but here are a couple of shots. The second is shot through the window of the Copeland covered bridge that Kyle mentioned. There's a state historic marker there that I'll be adding to NYHistoric.com eventually.

Took a scenic drive with my family yesterday for fall foliage and falls. We stopped at Beecher Creek Falls to see the falls and the covered bridge. Nice little area that should be included as a 15 minute stop off point if traveling anywhere near Great Sacandaga Lake.
