McKeever Quadrangle

We have not been to this waterfall.  Our photographs were submitted by a contributor.  There are a couple of popular trails to it so, rather than reinvent the wheel, we will direct you to the CNY Hiking website for directions. 

USGS topographical maps of this area label two "Falls".  This waterfall is the more downstream of the two.  Although remote, it is a fairly popular waterfall destination.  Several on-line sources show pictures of this drop. 

Normally, we would post a page for this waterfall with the notation that there are additional, incidental falls upstream of it.  In this case, we are creating pages for the other two as well because they are noted on maps.

Woodhull Creek flows into the Forestport Reservoir which is on the Black River.  The Black flows into Lake Ontario at Dexter, just west of Watertown.
