A waterfall near the heart of Rochester. Who knew?

Located only a couple miles down river from High Falls, Lower Falls offers up more impressive views of the city of Rochester. From the Genesee Riverway Trail, you can gain easy access to many great views of this waterfall. Other great views can be achieved from the bridge spanning Driving Park Ave, just down river from Lower Falls.

However you choose to view this waterfall, you will want to park across the road at the Maplewood Rose Garden main parking area. From the parking area, you can easily access the Riverway Trail without having to cross any busy streets.

Lower Falls is measured at about 110′ and has a very wide crest that makes it great for visiting almost any time of the year. The trails are well maintained and family friendly.
