Lower Eagle Cliff Falls, New York

I previously discussed Eagle Cliff Falls, which is upstream from this smaller set of waterfalls. This smaller set of falls is a set of multiple drops, each about 3-8 feet tall. While Eagle Cliff Falls is taller, this is also just as interesting. They are also easier to access, as you don’t have to hike up the short trail to get to Eagle Cliff Falls. Even that trail is not significantly steep, but this can be viewed without much effort at all!

Directions:

  1. From the city of Montour Falls, head south on NY-14 for a very short distance.
  2. On your left, you will find Havana Glen Rd. Turn left onto Havana Glen Rd.
  3. There will be park and parking area off of Havana Glen Rd. to your right. Park in this area.
  4. You will pass the the baseball diamonds and head toward a sign in a remote corner of the park that will lead to the trail for Eagle Cliff Falls.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 15′
Length of Hike: 0.1 miles round-trip

Eagle Cliff Falls, New York

In Havana Glen, there is this interesting waterfall known as Eagle Cliff Falls. The waterfall is not nearly as tall or wide as some of the other falls in the area, nor is it as widely known. Maybe that’s what makes it so interesting. This was one of the few waterfalls in New York where there was no one else around.

It’s located in a park, and you may have to pay for entrance into the park at certain times, though when I was there, nobody was accepting payment. The hike to the falls is short, though it seems very secluded. As you hike along, you are hugging cliff walls. This trail may be closed until mid-May, as are many other waterfalls in the area. It’s still worth checking out, though.
