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

A place to discuss waterfalls. Including the parks that house them and the hikes to get to them.

Cascades of Attica

two drops... 30-something feet.
birdseye

Topo

There also seems to be a falls downstream: birdseye

And a sizable one upstream

and another

Accessibility for any of them is doubtful.

We went here yesterday. It is in fact the Cascades of Attica. It's good to see this accessable now. At the trailhead on the west side of the creek the owner posted a sign saying something to the effect: "Please carry out all trash or this will become posted." Looks like people are abiding. There was not one scrap of litter anywhere to be found.

Ahh... okay... I had them marked as more towards cascade rd. I'll update this title to reflect... yeah I heard these were accessible now. :up: A big thanks to the land owner, and I'll make sure I bring a bag to pick up any trash I see.

Any pics from your visit?

Julie forgot her camera so I let her use mine the whole time. I haven't looked at what she took yet. We went to Warsaw Falls too yesterday.

How's the flow there? I've been meaning to add some better photos to the profile for Warsaw.

Average. It wasn't roaring but it wasn't low. In a dry summer it may dry to a trickle by August.

Taken on Sunday:

The upper falls...

We didn't go down to the base of the main falls. I know there's a rope you can use to get down there. At least there was last time I was here many years ago.

An interesting sign we saw along the way. The town must have run out of "truck going uphill" signs. :)
