Rutland Center Quadrangle

There are three unnamed waterfalls just upstream from the Burrville Falls and the Burrville Cider Mill, which is a landmark in Jefferson County.  This one is the first and smallest of these three.  It is about one-quarter mile from the cider mill.  Actually, it appears that these falls are man-made or at least enhanced by man.  There is a concrete dam structure with a mill pond of sorts behind it.  There is a home right by the pond.  We asked if this is a converted mill, but apparently it isn't.  

There is a waterfall by the mill.  To access the other falls, you must follow the creek behind the mill.  We mean this literally.  This is not a trek you want to make if you are adverse to walking in the creek or encountering pricker bushes.  Also, since this is private property, one should get permission from the property owners.  Our thanks to Greg Steiner of the Burrville Cider Mill for allowing us access to this area.

The Jacobs Creek flows into the North Branch of the Sandy Creek, which then flows into the Sandy Creek, which eventually reaches Lake Ontario.
