Clarendon Falls in Holley, New York is a 25-foot waterfall that can be visited in a short 0.2-mile loop or out-and-back walk.

This is not a hike but rather a quick walk out to the 25-foot tall Clarendon Falls, which has two main tiers that cascade down the bedrock. Visitors can choose to simply walk to the waterfall and back to parking or walk the entire park in a short 0.2-mile loop. There's a bench that sits just below the waterfall so you can relax and enjoy the cascading water.

Private Property
Note that surrounding the park are private homes and lots. Please be respectful of the locals and stay on public land.

History - Farwell's Mills
At this site, Eldred Farwell, first white settler of the town, built the first mills in Clarendon. A saw mill was built in 1811 and a grist mill was built in 1813.

Parking
Visitors will find a small parking lot at the coordinates provided. It's large enough to fit a half-dozen vehicles as of September, 2022.

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!️
