In 2013, the right side of the waterfall was not posted.
Update as of October 2014: This last visit now has posted signs on both sides of the falls. Viewing is now only from the bridge.

Since this location is posted and only offers views of this location from the bridge, we suggest checking out the waterfalls located upstream, which can be readily accessed from a roadside path. The Falls on Farrington Road are very beautiful and should offer the perfect secondary location to visit during your trip to the area.

Additionally, google imagery shows 3 more sections of falls leading up to the Farrington Rd.

Falls #3: 43.16477, -74.98318,
Falls #4: 43.16483, -74.98256,
