Poestenkill Falls Park – Mount Ida Falls – Troy

Mount Ida Falls has several names, depending on who you talk to. In Poestenkill Gorge Park is located one of Troy’s best-kept secrets; Poestenkill Falls. Referred to as Poestenkill falls, Mt. Ida Falls, Wire Mill Falls and Poestenkill High Falls you will find it hard not to call them incredible. Totalling of over 175′ from top to bottom, you will only be able to see the bottom most portion from publicly accessible land. The upper portion of these falls is […]


Niagara Falls State Park – Niagara Falls

Bash Bish Falls – Taconic State Park – Copake Falls

Cross state lines to catch this waterfall. We dare you! While Bash Bish Falls is located in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, the parking area for the lower portion of the falls is located in New York State. We like to consider this waterfall a NY beauty all the same. You actually cross the MA/NY border on your hike to the main falls. This unique waterfall is split at the top by an enormous boulder chiseled out of the surrounding rock […]


Buttermilk Falls – South New Berlin

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 […]
