The Whetstone Gulf State Park is home to the Whetstone Gulf Falls.  There are also a number of smaller drops on the creek that runs through the base of the gorge here.

These pictures are of some of those drops.  The first eight were taken from the gorge trail with a point and shoot camera on a trip there in 2010.  These are all downstream of where Whetstone Gulf Falls enters the creek

The last two were submitted by a contributor who hiked up the creek.  These are located upstream of where the Gulf Falls enters the creek.  It is a 2-1/2 mile walk from the park to the upper area.

The Whetstone Creek flows into the Black River, which flows to Lake Ontario in Dexter, New York.
