Northern New York Waterfalls 

Deadman's Curve Falls


In the village of Barneveld, NY 365 takes a right angle turn at an intersection.  If you are northbound, continue straight across this intersection (turn left if you are southbound).  This is Boone Street which becomes Parker Hollow Road once you leave the village limits.  In about 1-1/4 miles, you will come to a bridge.

Remsen Quadrangle

We originally had this posted as Cincinnati Creek Falls but have found that locally it has this name.  We urge caution while viewing this waterfall.  The falls gets its name from the section of road, and that got its name for a reason! 

The only view of this waterfall is from the road.  You must either park below the curve and walk up or park above it and walk back.  The road is narrow here and there are stone walls on both sides of the road.  There are no sidewalks or shoulders.  You are literally on the highway as you walk through this section.

The creek begins its descent about 150' above the bridge.  There are three or four small steps and then a slide to the bridge as it flows through this section.  The creek-bed is at the bottom of a fairly steep ravine and even the roadway is considerably above it.  on the other side of the creek, a steep embankment rises well above where you stand.  During the  spring, what appear to be a couple of very thin waterfalls cascade down this embankment.  There are no streams coming in at this point, so in reality, this is just run-off finding its way to this point.  Below the bridge, several slides and small steps lead to a drop of six or seven feet.  Below this, more slides and rapids complete the stretch.

The Cincinnati Creek flows into the West Canada Creek just downstream of the Trenton Falls area.  This empties into the Mohawk River, which then flows into the Hudson before reaching the Atlantic Ocean.
