I had been in the vicinity a number of times, but I required a GPS to find this hidden gem. Interesting bit of history that a sketch of it drawn by the future king Louis hangs in the Louvre.

A spectacular waterfall that looks like it empties right into the basement of a house at the end of a historic street. However, the water makes an immediate turn heading North. Besides the beauty of the falls, there are a number of historic buildings, including...More

These falls are right in the middle of the historic downtown of Montour Falls. I mean they are literally right there, with neighboring houses on either side. Pretty cool setting, and really this stop will only take 15 minutes or so. The surrounding historical district...More

One of the most accessible waterfalls around. If you really wanted to you need not get out of your vehicle. The falls are almost in the center of town. It’s worth taking a walk through the town.

Less than 5 miles. As you leave Watkins Glen headed south on State Route 14 and enter Montour Falls, you will see Montour Falls on your right (parking on the left). Take the next fork right, N. Gennessee St, and... More
