In the village of Dolgeville, just south of the intersection
of NY29 and NY167, the mill is very prominent on the river
side of NY167. Parking is street-side by the mill.

This waterfall is located at
the historic old Dolgeville Mill. It also is referred to as
the old Dolgeville Mill Falls, the old Dolgeville Falls and at one
time may have been called Flat Falls. Although there is now
a hydro facility at this location, there is still a small waterfall
below the dam.
Distant views of the falls and dam are possible from a viewing
area at the mill, although you are no longer able to get out on
the bridge there. Even more distant views are available further
upstream from Van Buren Street. The best views are from the
other side of the creek, at a parking lot on Dolge Avenue.
This falls is actually a series of two slides and plunges.
Immediately below the dam, there is a gentle slide into a plunge
which leads into the second of the series.
The water from the East Canada Creek enters the Mohawk and Hudson
Rivers before reaching the Atlantic Ocean in New York City.
