Waterfalling Near Skaneateles
Waterfalling is the sport of visiting waterfalls. Because of its glacial history and geologic features, the Finger Lakes Region is loaded with waterfalls – all waiting for your discovery. Some can be seen from the seat of your car; others require a very short walk. Still others require a long walk or hike. The ultimate in adventure waterfalling comes when you get your feet wet and walk up a shallow stream to climb small waterfalls and eventually stand spellbound at the base of a mighty cataract. This form of waterfalling is labeled creekwalking.
