Don't blink as you drive up Seneca Lake or you could miss this amazing view. Not much room for parking but park up ahead and walk to take some great pictures.

At first, it didn't seem like a tourist place. There was no crowd and it was on a highway and all the vehicles were passing by! Albeit, we saw 2 cars stopped by the side and we decided to stop by and check the place out. It turned out to be fun :) I climbed down as I saw other... More

Due to shortage of rain in the area, sadly the falls looked nothing like this picture. Plus when I tapped on map to bring me to Google Maps it took me miles in the opposite direction. After giving up trying to find it, was surprised to pass it 20 min later in a different location.

We pulled over to take pictures and videos! Despite the drought; the falls still looked beautiful. Can't wait to go back!

You need to know where this is located on the main roadway or you will drive right by them. Beautiful little spot to stop and take a break and watch and listen to the water

These falls can be spectacular. During the spring thaw, in April they are thundering. Right now we are having a severe drought and the falls are just a trickle. When we have a real cold spell in the winter the ice formations are amazing.

The road goes right by the falls. Be careful if you stop to take a picture. There was a good amount of water compared to other falls in the area even though it was a dry spell.
