Boonville Quadrangle

Pixley FallsPixley Falls is promoted as the main attraction in the Pixley Falls State Park.  Just south of Boonville it is quite easy to find.  The park is open all year and features a nature trail that weaves through the woods and past the falls.

As you enter the park and cross the bridge, the road will bend to the right.  Just past this, bear left at the "Y" and continue to the upper area.  You will see a trail on your right which will take you to the base of the falls.

This is a nice little park which is now a day-use only area.  Camping is no longer allowed there but it is available for picnic use.  The 50' Pixley Falls is a nice one and you can get so close to the bottom of it that you will feel the mist it creates.  At the base of the falls, there is a small, unnamed feeder stream entering.  Just upstream from here, there is at least one other small waterfall. 

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