Aunt Sarah's Falls in Montour Falls, New York is an easy 0.1 mile walk to a large 90-foot tall fantail waterfall, named Sarah's Falls. The waterfall cascades down a slate hill gorge alongside NY-14 where visitors can get a great view of the waterfall without leaving their cars if they wish.

There is no real trail here, but the GPS recording provided leads from the parking area, to the base of Sarah's Falls, and back. The view from the parking lot is probably better than from the base of Sarah's Falls, but that's just my opinion. Note that the waterfall, for obvious reasons, is mostly dried up during the Summer.

Other Waterfalls in Town
There are plenty of waterfalls close-by that usually flow year-round with more water than this one, like Deckertown Falls or Shequaga Falls - both in Montour Falls, NY.

Parking
Visitors will find parking at the coordinates provided. The lot is large enough to fit a couple dozen vehicles.

Pets
Dogs are allowed if leashed.

Warning
Crossing NY-14 is not easy, be careful. Also note that the view from the parking lot is better than the view from the base of the waterfall, generally speaking.

Finally got to see Aunt Sarah's Falls in all of its glory during a heavy Winter snow squall. Showed up right as the snow began to really come down, which made for beautiful scenery but soon the waterfall was completely out of sight when viewed from across the road. Came back after the snow stopped to find the 90-foot tall Aunt Sarah's Falls cascading down the bedrock with a dark-green pool of water at its base. Beautiful place when the water is flowing.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
