“A Cascading Beauty”

Reviewed 29 July 2014

Zipping along the eastern lake shore road in search of a couple of vineyards, I almost missed Hector Falls right on the side of the road. Coming back, I pulled over for a picture but not much more as there is no place to park. The water tumbles down in a beautiful cascading manner with a swirling motion. It is an intriguing place with water falling across varied rock formations into a pool below. Turn around for an equally beautiful view of Seneca Lake. Any hope to of enjoying it in a more relaxed way is dashed by the parking challenge.

Located right on the highway with little access. Very few parking spots alongside the road adjacent to the falls. Do not park on the private property next to the falls. Nice little motel sits next to the falls would be a pleasant place to stay when visiting Seneca Lake.

Gorgeous waterfall right on the side of the road, but if you're looking at the lake you'll miss it. There is room to pull to the side of the road for a picture.

I love Hector Falls. You have to keep an eye out for it because it kind of sneaks up on you as you enjoy the views of Seneca Lake on the opposite side of the road. We always stop on our way back because of this!

If you are traveling around Seneca Lake and go north on Rt. 414 from Watkins Glen you will pass Homer Falls. You just can't resist pulling over and stopping, there is even a little parking area on both sides. The falls are beautiful, both the upper falls and the ones you can see under the road which empty into the lake. Take a minute to look around and have your picture taken!
We have passed Homer Falls many times and we stop almost each time we are there!
