According to the Black Rock Forest Consortium, the location is closed and should be avoided: “…the police have closed access to the road and all parking at that location. Additionally, Black Rock Forest has closed the entrance at the request of the Cornwall Town of Police Department. “
Dig The Falls is going to attempt to work directly with the local officials and land steward to ensure we can provide as much support in protecting the property as we legally can. Removing this post, in this case, would not be beneficial since we had already published the information, and the location appears in several guidebooks, many of which were published years ago. The next best thing we could do is provide a very clear statement that the property is not to be trespassed upon.
If asked, Dig The Falls will side with the land steward in any legal claims against trespassers to the property. We take landowner rights very seriously and ask you to do the same.
With this said, there are other locations nearby – Please refer to the bottom of the page for other locations that are publicly accessible.
