Description

Along the Keuka Outlet Trail, Seneca Falls offer a beautiful trailside scene between historic mills.

The first mill erected here was a saw and gristmill completed in 1790 with a 26-foot overshot wheel and two tons of stones brought all the way from Connecticut. It may have been the first mill built west of Seneca Lake. The falls was a source of water power for grinding grain into flour.

Short Run: Along the Keuka Outlet Trail, the falls are approximately 3.6 miles from the Penn Yan access. A road also parallels much of the trail, providing easy access to the mills and falls.
