Eagle Bay Quadrangle

We found this waterfall when attempting to locate Twitchell Falls.  We assume that the trailheads are the same. 

At the point noted in the directions box, there is a NYS DEC sign that also had a yellow blaze on it.  However, do not follow the blazes.  Instead, walk a few dozen yards, bear left and listen for the water.  You will locate this falls in less than 250 feet. 

We estimate that this waterfall drops about ten feet, in three sections.  The top is a very small drop.  The creek then makes a sharp right and slides twenty feet or so before making a sharp left.  In another twenty feet, there are two quick steps of about two-and-a-half feet each.  This all takes place over what appears to be a huge boulder.

Twitchell Creek flows into the Beaver River at Stillwater Reservoir.  The Beaver continues into the Black River, which empties into Lake Ontario at the Black River Bay, just southwest of the village of Dexter.
