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

2010 - What's Missing?

Re: 2010 - What's Missing? 38A Falls,Moravia

Postby pgflyer1 » Sat Feb 13, 2010 12:09 pm

Matt and everyone:
If you go down 38A back towards Moravia, on your right side of the road is "St. Partrick's Cemetary". I think if you inquired with this church, you probably could get permission to enter cemetary and park there. Using google earth and path marking tool. It's about 1000 feet of creek walking up to the first falls. It's out of the question for me, I have arthitis in my lower back and cannot hike any real distances. On google maps you can find "property rights maps". I have some friends that used it to look at their own property to view boundaries.
I hope this may help anyone going to view this area ?
If anyone needs a helping hand in this venture ? Please feel free to email me what you need help with. Please put "Moravia" in subject matter, otherwise I'll disregard email and you won't get any answer.
Best of luck !
Marty

I just remembered there's a few minor 10-20 foot falls on Johns Creek in the village of Montour Falls. Easily accessible and on village property. At least that's what the owner of At The Falls B&B mentioned when we stayed there a few years ago.

Here's some bad pictures...

Duh....if I had looked at your map I would have know that this is Montville Falls.
