Waverly Glen Falls at Waverly Glen Park in Waverly, New York is an easy and accessible 0.3-mile out-and-back trail that leads to the 40-foot tall waterfall Waverly Glen Falls.

This is not a hike but rather a short walk that follows a universally accessible path. Hikers will pass a small waterfall in Dry Brook before the trail crosses a bridge, spanning the creek.

Waverly Glen Falls - Mile 0.15
Around mile 0.15, hikers will reach the base of Waverly Glen Falls. Waverly Glen Falls cascades down the ~40-foot shale rock ledge as it feeds Dry Brook. As of May 2023, there are a couple of benches at the base of the waterfall located ~10-feet above the creek. Hikers can scramble down the large boulders to reach Dry Brook for a different perspective if they wish and if the water level is low enough. Note that after periods of low rainfall and low Winter snow melt, Waverly Glen Falls can often be found dried up, hence the creek's name Dry Brook.

Universal Access
This trail starts out as a paved pathway but quickly changes to flat dirt and stone. The path should be considered universally accessible up to the viewing point with benches by the base of the waterfall.

Parking
Visitors will find parking at the coordinates provided at the far end of the entrance road to Waverly Glen Park.

Pets
Dogs are allowed only if leashed and must be cleaned up after.
