Boonville Quadrangle

Bakers FallsThis waterfall is a little over two miles upstream from the very popular Pixley Falls.  There is a roadside pull-off on the east side of the highway.  A foot bridge is visible from the road.  As you walk toward the bridge, bear to the right of the creek and follow the steep foot trail leading down to the base of the falls.

This waterfall is on an unnamed stream that enters Lansing Kill immediately across from Lansing Kill Falls.  Many sources indicate that this waterway is formed by a "waste weir" on the Black River Canal.  That may have been at one point, but the canal hasn't been in operation for several decades and this waterway still exists so we are going with the theory that this is an unnamed stream that follows a portion of the route of the former canal.  Many maps still label this as the Black River Canal.

This is a very intriguing area for the waterfaller.  At the base of this falls, you are literally looking at two very nice waterfalls.  Bakers Falls enters Lansing Kill at the base of Lansing Kill Falls.  Our thanks to Stacy Brown for submitting these pictures.  Our only trip here was in mid-April and, although our photos show a lot of water, there is no color.  They are not very appealing to view!

Lansing Kill flows into the Mohawk River.  This empties into the Hudson River which flows into the Atlantic Ocean.
