This waterfall is well promoted.  It is fairly common knowledge that the trailhead is quite difficult to find.

On our first visit there, we located another waterfall which we mistakenly believed to be this one.  A return trip is planned for spring 2018 to located the proper location.

At a point indicated in the directions box, there is a NYS DEC sign and a yellow blaze.  We assume that this is the trailhead but we will know more after our return.

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.
