Comments, Notes: There is a small parking spot almost directly in front of an access point for the canal trail system. You will see the bridge and falls from the road. From the road you will go le Ft and cross the bridge. The well worn path down is directly to your right. The trail gets steep and was very muddy and slippery. The trail is not maintained. There was no posted signs that we could see. The trail is short and you will look for another trail on your right that goes down to the bottom between the two waterfalls. If I have this correctly the waterfall you see from the bridge looking down is Lansing Kill Falls. The waterfall you see in the distance is Bakers Falls. Lansing Kill Falls is fed by the Lansing Kill River. Bakers Falls is fed by the Lansing Kill Creek. They both meet at the bottom and continue the flow into Lansing Kill River.
