Pratt’s Falls, New York

Pratt’s Falls in May 2009

I almost missed Pratt’s Falls. I had seen it listed online, but hadn’t written down directions to visit it. Luckily, when going to visit Chittenango Falls, there was a pretty clear sign on the road indicating that Pratt’s Falls was nearby. We quickly pulled off onto the road leading to Pratt’s Falls. The waterfall is in a park and is pretty easy to get to.

Once there, we only viewed the falls from the parking area. I think that view is sufficient, though there is a trail that leads to another view of the falls. The falls is extremely beautiful and surprisingly tall. It’s amazing how there’s this stunning waterfall when you least expect it.


  1. From I-81, exit onto US-20 heading east.
  2. Drive on US-20 until you see the sign for Pratt’s Falls Park. I think you will take a left.
  3. From there, just follow the signs to the park.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 137′
Length of Hike: 0.5 miles round-trip
