Brickyard Falls – Morning Hike with Dad

Its Spring Break so we’re getting the first hike of the year out of the way (in prep of many more). The CNY Land Trust acquired more acreage along Brickyard Falls complete with existing 4-wheel trails that lead down to the creek bed (No need to scale the cliffs, although you can if you are careful). As such it is the perfect time to grab Grandpa (Dad) and go for a hike through the woods.

Quite a nice enjoyable stroll with several old cars along the way. The great debate is whether the original owners took the trail to sharply and voila or if they were dumped here after they were through with them.

During heavy rain or high levels accessing the falls isn’t going to feasible as the water level rises up to the cliff face in certain areas. We didn’t go into the basin of the falls since the immediate bank of the falls is privately owned. I’ll need to take another stroll down with my water shoes in the summer and walk the creek all the way up.

Central New York is waterfall country for sure. A few more local ones to catch including 3 falls woods.
