St. Johnsville Quadrangle

Timmerman Creek FallsFirst and foremost, this is private property.  On our fist visit there several years ago, there were a number of posted signs on the land surrounding the waterfall.  On a return in September 2017, the property was fenced off.

We are surmising that the owners have experienced the same problem a number of other private waterfall owners have encountered ... a disrespectful public crawling all over their land.

As we have said many times, respect the property owners.  You don't even need to leave the highway right-of-way because the creek is only a few feet off the road and excellent views and pictures are possible from there.  In fact, the pictures we took on the first trip were taken from the opposite side of the road.  

We have estimated the height of this waterfall at 15' and have called this a curtain cascade.  One could probably argue that it is a step waterfall, but the top steps are so quick and the lowest drop is about half the overall drop, which makes that cascade the prominent feature.

The Timmerman Creek empties into the Mohawk River about 1.9 miles downstream from this location.  This flows into the Hudson before reaching the Atlantic Ocean.
