Wilton Quadrangle

Snook Kill FallsThis is a very nice waterfall.  If you walk up the road from the intersection to the bridge, you can view it from above.  To see the falls from below, walk down the hill from the intersection.  There are two yellow signs with arrow warning of the curve, one in each direction.  The trail leading to the stream's edge is directly across from the more downhill of these two arrows.  It is a bit of a scramble to the bank because the trail is not maintained, but worth the trip.  The upper part of these falls go through several drops or slides before a final plunge of 20' or so.

There is a bit of history to this area.  Just down the hill from the intersection where you parked, there is a historical marker identifying the "Battle of Wilton".

The Snook Kill empties in the Hudson River, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean.
