Hike to Tenant Creek Falls

Rate this Adventure New York Tenant Creek Falls Parking

Added by Rebecca Nichols

Enjoy this gentle forest walk to view three beautiful waterfalls.  

The parking and first mile of this trail is new.  The parking lot will be on the right side of the road and allows for about 6 vehicles comfortably.  The trail starts directly from the parking lot with a small wood plank.

The trail is well worn and marked with many yellow discs  It is approximately 1.0 mile to the lower falls.  Many choose to just visit this first fall however, you can choose to continue  to the additional falls.  

Keep in mind if you choose to continue it is unmarked. The trail however is well-defined and not difficult to follow. An additional mile along Tenant Creek, and a little climb up and down a small ridge leads to the second waterfall.

About another 250 yards upstream from the second falls is the third.  Any of the falls offers a great spot to cool off.

From here you just retrace your steps.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
