Overview

A must see attraction is Tinker Falls, an impressive natural rock amphitheater about 50 feet in height located on a small stream in the southeast section of the area. The falls are most spectacular during spring run off, and they can be reached via a foot trail from Route 91.

Getting There

This trail, reached via NY 91, twists through the peaceful woods alongside Tinkers Falls Stream. Eventually, you reach where Tinker Falls, a spectacular waterfall, can be seen in its full glory. There is also handicapped parking at that start of the trail.

Red Tape

Get there on weekends BEFORE the Cornell Univ. people show up! They tend to be bossy Ice-hogs!!! Sorry CU guys but someone needed to tell ya's. But remember... "life is serious...ya gotta laugh!"
