Dig The Who?

Dig the Who? When you hear the name “Dig The Falls”, you may wonder what we do. Do we excavate waterfalls? Do we like it when people fall down? No, but close! Dig The Falls is the name given by Founder Edward Smathers back in 2005 when he set out to create a database of New York’s waterfalls and a New York waterfall map. It simply means we dig (like) waterfalls! But what is it that we do? Well, it […]

Shooting the Falls: Tenant Creek Falls

By John Haywood I chose this throwback of Tenant Creek Falls to kickoff the relaunch of our “Shooting the Falls series” that covers photography of New York Waterfalls.

Robert H Treman State Park Lucifer Falls

Robert H. Treman State Park – Ithaca

One could say this is Watkin Glen’s Doppelganger! But they would be weird… Address: 105 Enfield Falls Rd, Ithaca, NY 14850 Phone: (607) 273-3440 Website: https://parks.ny.gov/parks/135/ In all honesty, the first time I visited this park, I thought of Watkins Glen State Park a lot! Starting from the lower lot, the hike is a bit steep, but most can easily get to the gorge trail with a little effort put forth. There are a couple of trails to get you started and most start […]
