Pins denote waterfall locations. The color and markings on the pin indicate the status and some details of the location. Pins represent approximate locations only. In some cases one pin may represent a location with many waterfalls (a glen or park). Click the pin to get a brief description of the location and, if available, a link to the NYFalls.com profile for that location.
Blue Pins indicate a location of a single waterfall. The blue color indicates that the waterfall is accessible. Even if the waterfall is on private property, if you can see it clearly without trespassing, like from the roadside, it will be marked as blue.
Diamond Pins indicate that this location has more than one waterfall. Diamond pins can be Blue, Red or White.
Red Pins indicate that this location is not accessible. Either it is on private property or some other reason you are not allowed to go there. Chances are you will not be able to see this waterfall. NYFalls.com lists the locations of these falls for educational purposes and asks that you respect property owner’s rights and keep off their land.
White Pins indicate that little information is known about this location. Either we don’t know if the falls is accessible or the number of falls or location is not confirmed.
