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

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.
