Comments, Notes: Utilizing google imagery, I was in the right location area, but above the actual Napanoch Falls. Parking for the Napanoch Falls was here N41.74170 W74.37650 corner of Hwy 55 and Clinton Street and Water Street. I found a view of falls further upstream here N41.74208 W74.38047, on Old Lackawack Road. There is another set of falls below Napanoch Fall here N41.74011 W74.37747, located near the corner of Irish Cape Road and Old Lackawack Road. Further upstream and above what I found are what appears to be 2 more sets of Falls. I am guessing the best time to revisit would be spring or fall. Plan to return in the future.
