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

I'd love to see a photo of this falls some time. It's listed in my NYS Gazeteer can't find much info on it. I've tried to access the creek from upstream but its all residential and I'm not about to cut through backyards. Access from downstream is on the other side of the road from Paper Mill Falls but is heavily posted.

Same here, that's right around the corner from my work. There is also a small falls (8' ?)on Pole Bridge Road just south of Lake Road. It is on Little Conesus Creek.

I just thought of another idea looking at my Gazeteer again. I wonder if it could be accessed by walking along the Livonia and Avon railroad grade? I'll have to check that out some time.

What does anyone know about these falls? These are a bit further up the creek. According to the waterfall map page these could be Decker Falls? But they are definately higher than 10'.

Wagener Glen

Pultney, NY

http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=42.5 ... 1&t=p&z=15

Unknown # of falls and heights.

Unknown ownership. (Currently corresponding with Town Clerk in regards to ownership, but it has been slow going)


There is a large falls here maybe about 75 feet high. Is possibly private but there were no posted signs as of a few years ago.


Finally got an response from the owner.



Dear Mr. Hobart,

I apologize for not responding to your letter this past summer. But, since you have followed up with various inquiries regarding the Wagner gully property in the town of Pulteney, you should be informed of the position of the trustees that manage the property.

They understand your intentions, but due to liability issues, cannot allow you to use the property for recreational, photographic, or any other purpose.

We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,

Walt Peek,
Trustee

Morganville Falls

by cbobcat49 » Sat Jun 23, 2007 5:06 pm
Another falls nearby is Morganville Falls near Batavia. About 25 feet high I think. I've only been at the crest of that. All the downstream access points are heavily posted.



I have obtained permission to access these falls and plan to visit sometime this spring.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

I'd love to go with you when you go or find out who owns the property and get permission. I used to camp down there when I was a kid and haven't been back in years.
