One of the best roadside locations we know of!
Buttermilk Falls is located on Buttermilk Falls Rd… A little redundant for sure, but rest assured that this location is not very well known. We first found out about this location from a local resident and visited several years ago. The road is a smaller tar and gravel side-road that is almost seasonal but has residences not too far from the waterfall.
There are several waterfalls on this portion of the creek. The main waterfall is over 30′ high and there are two more just above it that are around 10′ each. These two could be referred to as twin falls because they emanate from a split in the creek and almost mirror each other in likeness. We have not visited these falls in a couple years and storms may have impacted them greatly, but I am sure they are just as beautiful!
You will need to park on the side of the road and walk into the woods to the creek bed to view these falls up close. There are no marked trails, so be especially careful to not add to corrosion of the creek banks. Choose an area of access that is less steep to allow for sure footing and causes the least amount of disturbance of the bank materials.
The property north of the waterfall is posted, so please be careful when visiting the area. Find out about more local falls in Waterfalls of New York State on Amazon.
