Northern New York Waterfalls
"Roadside Falls of Northern New York Volume 3 The Mohawk Valley"

Roadside Falls of Northern New York Volume 3, The Mohawk ValleyThe Mohawk River is one of the longest rivers completely contained within New York State.  A major portion of it runs east-west through the center of the state.  This waterway, along with the Erie Canal, Oneida Lake, Oneida River and the Oswego River, form a water boundary defining the southern portion of the region we call Northern New York.

This book will guide you through 50 waterfall locations in seven counties, all or part of which are immediately north of these waterways.  All falls described are within 1/2 mile of a highway and many offer roadside views.  This is not intended to be a collection of magnificently tall descents or of the most popular falls in the area.  It is simply a list of pretty locations that are easy to get to.

Roadside Falls of Northern New York Volume 3, The Mohawk Valley has been arranged so that the reader can "tour" these falls somewhat sequentially.  We start in Oswego County and proceed east through Oneida, Herkimer, Montgomery, Schenectady, Saratoga and Washington Counties. 

Each waterfall is presented on a two-page spread with a full-page color photograph and descriptive text that includes driving directions, information and history of the falls and the area and access information. Sidebars feature handy at-a-glance information, such as the location, walk time, trail type, GPS coordinates and the size and type of waterfall.

This is the third and final volume featuring "Roadside Falls" in the north country.

About the Author

David J. Schryver was born and raised in Watertown, New York, Jefferson County. After high school, he received an A.A.S. Degree in Math/Science from Jefferson Community College. He then attended SUNY Oswego where he obtained a BS in Secondary Education with New York State certification to teach mathematics, 7-12.

His career took him to St. Lawrence County, where he spent 33 years as a math teacher and 39 years as a resident. Along the way, he earned two degrees from St. Lawrence University, an MEd and CAS, both in Educational Administration.

He and his wife, Marcia, a school reading specialist, were married in 1978. Now both retired, they split their time between their home on Pillar Point in Jefferson County and their winter home in Zephyrhills, Florida. They also spend as much time as they can with their three children and five grand-children and frequently find time to visit Northern New York's many beautiful waterfalls.

His interest in waterfalls and a side-line in web development led to the website, nnywaterfalls.com. First created in 2006, this has become a comprehensive guide to the falls in the northern part of the state. After Waterfalls of New York State, a book he co-authored was published in 2012, he decided that he wanted to follow-up on a long-time desire to write a book that focused on waterfalls in the North Country.

Roadside Falls of Northern New York Volume 1 The Tri-Counties and Roadside Falls of Northern New York Volume 2 The Adirondacks were both released in September 2017. This final volume will be available soon.
