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.

Directions:

  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
