It’s like a hidden treasure in there.

Great pictures, thanks! I spent several years of my early childhood not far from there after my family moved from Tennessee. Beautiful area is Watkins Glen.

Love the Finger Lakes. We’re back there every year visiting friends (and the wineries).

Ithaca has a bunch of falls, but it’s the ones that are seemingly off the beaten path that are really neat. Montour Falls is one of the bigger ones, but you’ve got to get off the main road to find it.

And it doesn’t matter the season, there’s always something magical about the waterfalls there.

The highway (NY-414) going up the east side of Seneca out of Watkins Glen goes right by a pretty neat looking large cascade very close to the lake. Hector Falls I believe - but there is not a public access pull-off for it that I could see right on the highway.

I haven’t done that much exploring off the routes near Cayuga or Seneca Lake. I only get extra time going through that area once every few years - and I generally use it for winery hopping to restock the rack. I am generally more familiar with the more western smaller lakes - Conesus, Hemlock, etc. since those are closer to my relatives. Plus there are a few neat waterfalls here and there on some of the Genessee River tributaries, not to mention the larger ones on the river itself in Letchworth State Park.

Grew up in Elmira and still get back to Keuka Lake most years. There is also Robert H Tremain State park near Ithaca. Used to be know as Endfield Glen with the same kinds of trails. The used to dam up the lower falls pool to make a very cold spring fed swimming area. Not sure if they still do that.
If you pay your $8.00 at Watkins , it’s good all day at the other state parks too.
Glenora Falls is on the west side of Seneca Lake really off the beaten path
what’s amazing is that it’s in somebody back yard!
