Comments, Notes: This was very easy to find. The trail looks well maintained. I have included a picture of the area where you would have to turn off main trail. Just listen for the falls. This section of the trail has the two seasonal waterfalls. More looks like run offs from somewhere further up. Also on this same section is the canastota falls and dam.
