Bacon Hill Rd Falls, Spafford NY

I stopped here today with a friend. The property on falls side of road is heavily posted. The creek flows out of a culvert and down a natural falls below. I estimate it's about 60 feet to bottom, maybe more. If you get permission to get in here to take pictures. You will need to rappel down and back out. If you are driving from south end of this road, there a small space for parking on right side at this location. There is a new guardrail above falls you could attach a rope too. Location: N 42 48' 44" W 76 17' 4" .

I stopped at this one yesterday. They filled in the falls ! Now it's only about 15 feet down from culvert, depressing that someone would do this. I did find another one on this at the south end. "Barber creek" crosses under the road. I followed it down stream and found this one. Too steep for me to climb down and ground was pretty wet too. I guess it's around 100 feet total height? Took a photo from ridge and from top of falls. I came out at a different location in woods and found it posted land.
