From NY 12 just south of the community
of Glenfield, the Lee Road will exit to the west.
The first right off this road is the Lovers Lane Road.
You will find these falls on the right a few hundred yards
from the corner.

This waterfall is not officially named. It is, however,
charted. If you check topographical maps, you will
find this labeled as "Falls". Referred to locally as House
Creek Falls due to the waterway they are on, please be advised that
they are on private and posted land.
This is a two-part drop. There is a very nice view of
the upper section, which we estimate at fifteen feet, from the
roadside in the spring. Once foliage arrives, most of that
view will be obscured.
The lower section is another story. This is close to a
30 foot cascade. You are looking over the crest but, as
with the upper portion, foliage will block this one later in the
spring. Our photos of this were taken with a drone.
Please note that posted signs are clearly visible. As
soon as you leave the right-of-way, you are on private and
posted land. Honor the landowner's property. Also,
once you pass that crest, it is a healthy drop. That is
probably why this area is posted. It is a long way down
into that ravine!
The House Creek flows into the Black River just a few miles downstream
from this location. The Black empties into Lake Ontario in
the Jefferson County community of Dexter.
