Pratt's Falls Trail at Pratt's Falls Park near Pompey, New York is a moderate 0.3-mile out-and-back hike that leads to an overlook of the 137-foot tall waterfall, Pratt's Falls.

Hike Description
This is less of a hike and more of a short walk that begins at the main large parking lot at Pratt's Falls Park and heads in along the paved trail that leads to the waterfall. Visitors will find a series of staircases just a couple-hundred feet into the walk where they'll follow the stairs downhill, most of the way, to reach the waterfall overlook. Note that visitors will want to take a left-hand turn at the junction shortly after reaching the bottom of the first set of stairs.

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 / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes 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, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
