Such a random, beautiful spot on the side of the road. Great photo spot, and possibly fun to hike around (but we didn't try). Lovely waterfall! Definitely worth the stop.

Stop here and get a great picture. You have to stop on the side of the road, so be careful, but worth the pic. Dont stop by the hotel, the guy is a jerk about it! Pulled down the road a bit

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...More
