Updated Waterfall Locations in Greene County, New York 2-9-2016
This concludes the waterfall locations I have for Greene County.

East Durham (falls in) Thorp Creek (Cornwallville Creek)
There is a small trail that leads to the edge of the cliff side where the falls can be seen. You can also view this from the top on the bridge. Use caution!!

Woodstock Dam and Falls Catskill Creek
Although this location is posted, there were at least 20 people here that stated it was okay to access the area. The link provided in addition information is calling the waterfall there “The Woodstock Waterfall”. That location is Tannery Brook Falls in Ulster County.

Bastion Falls aka Horseshoe Falls or Bastin Falls
This is also the beginning of the trail to Kaaterskill Falls. Even though this is roadside, parking is further up the road, and we had to walk quite far. The main parking area was full. From the main parking area, it is a .2 mile walk along the roadside.

Buttermilk Falls (Leeds) Green Lake Stream
The book indicates there are 3 falls here. I believe by the photos, we may have gotten a glimps of them. We have a hard time following the path, and crossing over the top of the falls looked rather sketchy.

Haines Falls
This is on private property. We asked the gate keeper permission to have access. We were not allowed to leave the roadside to get pictures any closer then what is shown here. The alternate long distant view is from the Layman’s Monument on the overlook up on Schutt Road.

Kaaterskill Falls
There are 2 access locations for the falls, you can choose to hike from the bottom up, which passes by Bastion Falls. This is a 1 1/2 mile round trip. The other access is from the top, which is located off of Laurel House Road. An easy trail leading to the top of the falls. Since I was here there have been changes made to the location of the falls due to the amount of injuries and deaths from folks getting to close to the edge. I plan to revisit this one in the future.

Rip Vanwinkle Falls aka Austin Falls and Leeds Falls and Great Falls
There is no access to this location as of our visit. There are posted signs everywhere. If anyone has information for access please let me know. Austin Glen Falls and Leeds Falls according to resources and google imagery shows the waterfall locations. Leeds Falls is listed as being above Rip Van Winkles Falls. Austin Glens Falls is below Route 23.
