Remsen Quadrangle

Partridge Hill FallsWe have been made aware of this waterfall by a local contributor.  It is unnamed, as is the stream it is on.  We are referring to it as the Prospect Hill Falls because of the road it is accessed from.

We believe that this is on private property which is not really an issue, because the roadside gives you an unobstructed view.  As always, please observe the landowner's rights.  Also, we are estimating its height based on the fact that topo maps show that it drops through 4 contour lines over about 1000' of this stream.

In the data box we say that it will be on the left after turning on the Partridge Hill Road.  We stress that is is immediately after the turn.  It does set back a fair distance from the road, so be looking for it.

This unnamed stream empties into the West Canada Creek only about 2000 feet, as the crow flies, from this location.  This flows to the Mohawk River, which in turn flows into the Hudson before reaching the Atlantic Ocean.
