West Stony Creek Falls
This 4ft (outside of the “technical specifications” for waterfalls, but historically known) waterfall formed on the North Branch of West Stony Creek is small in size but, large in scenery. Approximately 1.5 miles along the Northville-Placid Trail you will come to this waterfall just before reaching a footbridge that crosses the creek.
To get there: Driving North on Rte 30, look for County Rte 6 on the left just after crossing a bridge that spans West Stony Creek. Proceed straight for about 5.2 miles where you will see a sign for Lapland Ski Touring Center. You will come to an old iron bridge at 5.8 miles where Immediately after, the road forks. Remain headed straight, following signs for the Northville-Placid Trail for another o.6 mile. Turn left onto Godfrey Rd and drive for 0.5 miles and park in the designated area on the right. Follow signs for the trail. The falls will be approximate 1.5 miles along the trail.
