Middleville Quadrangle

Farrington Road FallsThis unnamed waterfall is located less than 1/4 mile upstream from the Old City Road Falls.  Clear views of the waterfall are available from the bridge on the Farrington Road and less favorable views can be seen from the Castle Road.  The riverbanks are physically traversable, but there are posted signs on your left as you view the falls and a barbed wire fence on the right.

The water from the Wolf Hollow Creek flows into the West Canada Creek, then enters the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers before reaching the Atlantic Ocean in New York City. 

In a side-note about Wolf Hollow Creek, this is the name assigned to this waterway by the USGS.  The US Geological Survey is the governmental agency that has the task of naming all geological features: mountains, rivers, lakes, waterfalls and so on.  That means that this is the official name of this waterway.  The NYS DEC also refers to this stream as the Wolf Hollow Creek.  We have found, however, that certain GPS devices, Garmin hiking units for example, use the name City Brook.  We don't know the source of this name, but it is significant to note that this alternative terminology is used.
