Northern New York Waterfalls 

Jenny Creek Lower Falls


Just east of the hamlet of Pitcairn, which is east of Harrisville, look for the Jayville Road, which exits south from NY 3.  Coming from the east on Route 3, it is 3.9 miles from the intersection of St. Lawrence County Route 23.  Drive up this road for just less than one mile and the falls will be on the right.

Harrisville Quadrangle

Jenny Creek Lower FallsThe Jenny Creek, which is no more than 4.8 miles long, contains at least four waterfalls on about a two mile stretch of the waterway.  The one most downstream has a common local name.  The other three are unnamed.  This one is the first of the unnamed waterfalls that we know of on this stretch.  As such, we have dubbed it the Jenny Creek Lower Falls.

The Jayville Road is paved for the first 0.8 miles and then turns to dirt and gravel.  You will come to this waterfall shortly after entering the dirt portion.

The falls contain two drops totaling about 30 feet.  There are no trails, handrails or fences here, but due to their proximity to the road, you can get a good view and several vantage points allow you to take good pictures.  The waterfall itself is on property owned by a private hunting club but that really isn't an issue.  There is good visibility from the road's right-of-way for pictures and viewing

The Jenny Creek flows into the Big Creek which flows into the West Branch of the Oswegathchie River.  This joins the main channel of the Oswegatchie near the hamlet of Talcville in the town of Edwards.  From here it flows into the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg.
