She-Qua-Ga Falls, New York

I envy the person whose property is right near She-Qua-Ga Falls. She-Qua-Ga Falls is one of the many beautiful waterfalls in the Finger Lakes region of New York that does not require a difficult or complicated walk along a gorge trail to view. The falls are in plain sight in the town of Montour Falls.

There is not really any trek to the falls except for a very enjoyable stroll around the city. It’s beautiful to see She-Qua-Ga Falls with Victorian-style homes in the foreground. It’s just a great sight to see, and easy to view too!!


  1. The easiest way to access She-Qua-Ga Falls and see other falls at the same time is to drive south on NY-14 toward Montour Falls from Watkins Glen.
  2. As you’re driving along, you’ll see signs for the falls. To view the falls, you can turn onto Genesee Street.
  3. You may not be able to park on Genesee Street, so we ended up parking on Main Street, I believe, which runs perpendicular to Genesee.
  4. From there the falls will be right in front of you, and the walk is on very level land.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 156′
Length of Hike: 0.1 miles round-trip
