McKeever Quadrangle

We have not been to this waterfall.  Our photographs were submitted by a contributor.  There are a couple of popular trails to it so, rather than reinvent the wheel, we will direct you to the CNY Hiking website for directions. 

This location is on the same hike as Sand Lake Falls.  It is about 0.3 miles upstream.  USGS topographical maps of this area label two "Falls".  This is at the point of the more upstream of the two labeled falls.

Normally, we would post a page for Sand Lake Falls, which is the primary drop in this area.  We would then have noted incidental falls upstream of it.  In this case, we are creating pages for these other two drops since they are noted on maps.

Woodhull Creek flows into the Forestport Reservoir which is on the Black River.  The Black flows into Lake Ontario at Dexter, just west of Watertown.
