For more information on this challenge click here
To purchase “Waterfalls of New York State”, click here 
To purchase “A Waterfall Guide to Letchworth State Park” by Scott A. Ensminger and Douglas K. Bassett, click here

The following list, is the third set of locations listed in the book by “Waterfalls of New York State” by Scott A. Ensminger (Western New York Waterfall Survey), David J. Schryver (Northern New York Waterfalls) and Edwards M. Smathers (Dig the Falls) Be sure to check them out! I myself have personally contributed a lot of waterfall location information to both Mr. Edward Smathers and Mr. David Schryver. I am currently a team member with “Dig the Falls”. The simple rules of this challenge, is to visit 100 waterfall locations in the book. One location may have several waterfalls, counts as one location. Click on the links (I have visited) in the boxes below, which will take you to additional information pages.

Please refer to “A Waterfall Guide to Letchworth State Park” by Scott A. Ensminger and Douglas K. Bassett, serious Letchworth State Park is a region of it’s own!!

Side Note: as I am putting this all together, I have additional photos that I never uploaded, my bad!
