Boynton Creek Falls

There are three unnamed waterfalls upstream from the Burrville Falls and the Burrville Cider Mill, which is a landmark in Jefferson County.  Just upstream from the cider mill is the Lower Jacobs Creek Falls.  Just above this, the Boynton Creek flows into the Jacobs Creek.  As you are facing upstream, the left branch is the Boynton Creek and the right branch is the Jacobs Creek.  The Boynton Creek Falls is just above this point.

These falls, which are labeled on topographical maps as "Falls", are very pretty and we are told that they drop about 90 feet.  From just above the Jacobs Creek Lower Falls, you can actually see the Boynton Creek Falls and the Jacobs Creek Middle Falls.  As you face these falls, just to the right of the base, there is actually another small waterfall.  Photo 4 shows this.  It appears that this is part of the Jacobs Creek where it flows around an island at this point.

Since this is private property, you need to get permission from the property owners to gain access.  Our thanks to Greg Steiner of the Burrville Cider Mill for allowing us access to this area.

The Boynton Creek joins the Jacobs Creek at this point.  This flows into the North Branch of the Sandy Creek, which then flows into the Sandy Creek, which eventually reaches Lake Ontario.
