This family friendly park features two 60 foot waterfalls. The walk in the creek passes the first falls and then continues to a second falls, for a total 2 mile round trip. The gorge is shaded and scenic. Although there are rocks to walk over, families bring their children here, so it's fairly easy. But be prepared for slippery rocks.
There is a picnic area next to the parking lot where we can eat lunch after the hike. There are also facilities.
From the north: From NY 5/US 20/ Eastern Blvd in Canandaigua, head south on NY 384 South/East Lake Rd. Follow 384 south for 12.1 miles. Toward Naples.
Turn right onto 245 South and take it into Naples. (about 8 miles). Turn right onto NY 21/North Main Street.. Continue south thru Naples for a mile. Turn left on Vine. Follow Vine until it ends (the GPS might stop short of the park). The parking area is just past a barrier gate. There is plenty of parking. I drive a maroon Ford Fusion.
