From the north: Drive west from
the hamlet of Martinsburg on the Cemetery Road.
Take a left at the Alger Road. As you cross the
West Road, this becomes the Corrigan Hill Road.
Follow this until you cross a bridge over the Whetstone
Creek. Just past the bridge there is a parking
From the south: Take NY 26 to
Houseville. Go west on the Houseville Gulf Road
(not the Houseville Road). The first right will
be the Corrigan Hill Road. The parking area is
on the left just before the bridge.
The Whetstone Gulf State
Park is home to the Whetstone Gulf Falls. There are also a
number of smaller drops on the creek that runs through the base
of the gorge here.
These pictures are of some of those
drops. The first eight were taken from the gorge trail with a point and shoot
camera on a trip there in 2010. These are all downstream
of where Whetstone Gulf Falls enters the creek
The last two were submitted by a contributor
who hiked up the creek. These are located upstream of
where the Gulf Falls enters the creek. It is a 2-1/2 mile
walk from the park to the upper area.
The Whetstone Creek flows into the Black River, which flows to
Lake Ontario in Dexter, New York.
