Comments, Notes: After I found this location, I seen on Northern New York waterfalls that this is the same falls they have listed, but different access point. I had first seen this from the bridge on South State Street. There is a sign at this bridge stating Herkimer County. The falls itself is accessed from the Oneida County side.
