“Astounding ... and in the middle of town”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

This cascading falls, over a huge rock wall is worth the detour to find. It's just a few miles from Watkins Glen State Park. Just park the car and walk over to it. It's simple and it's just there. And it's impressive.

“Postcard Pretty”
Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

This is a lovely waterfall, especially now, because the gorge in Watkins Glen is closed for the season. It is only a few miles south of Watkins Glen on Rt 14.

The village of Montour Falls is delightful. It's just a whistle stop but
when you get to the village, a sign will direct you to the falls.

The falls are illuminated at night this time of year. It's a nice thing to see on a cold day. Park and walk to the falls in less than 5 minutes. Great photo op.

“Tumbling Waters”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Nice small town with a beautiful cascade that is easily accessible. Definitely worth the stop if you are in the area. A little farther up the road is another smaller waterfall "Aunt Sarah's Falls."

Beautiful falls in the middle of downtown. There was a nice little guide there that explained some the of the history as well as described some of the interesting houses around the area.

“A must see for the handicapped”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

If you are unable to make the hike at the gorge in Watkins Glen, this is an excellent opportunity to see falls up close.
