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.

We originally had this posted as Cincinnati Creek Falls but have
found that locally it has this name. We urge caution while
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 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.
