Take I-81 to exit
43, commonly referred to as the Kellogg Hill exit. From the
exit, head east ... a right if you were northbound and a left if
southbound. Within a few hundred yards, you will intersect
Route 11. The north and southbound lanes are split at this
point by a large rock outcropping. Go straight across the
southbound lane and turn left. You will merge into the
northbound lane. Bear right and the falls will be a half
mile or so up the road on your right. There are signs as you
approach so it won't be hard to find.
Talcott Falls is certainly one of, if not the most popular
waterfall in Jefferson County, New York. It is within sight
of New York State Route 11, a few miles south of Watertown.
In fact, you don't even have to get out of your car to get good
pictures. It is the only waterfall in Jefferson County
listed on the USGS GNIS.
The property itself is private land. In fact, you can see
the family home on the hill just south of the falls.
The Stony Creek is actually one of the smallest waterways that
flows into Lake Ontario that contains a waterfall. Further
downstream, it flows through the village of Henderson. Its
outlet into Lake Ontario is just south of Stony Point in the town
