Explore the Gibsonville area of Letchworth State Park highlighted by the 45 foot Papermill Falls.
The trail is marked as #19 on Letchworth State Park maps also known as Gibsonville Trail. The trailhead is located in the northern section of the park between the Highbanks Recreation area and the Highbanks Tent and Trailer camping. There is parking just north of the bridge that crosses the Silver Lake Outlet.
Follow trail #19 to the east of the road and explore the remains of what was once the hamlet of Gibsonville and the cascades and waterfalls of Silver Lake Outlet.
