“A true hidden gem, Tinker Falls rewards visitors with an amphitheater of falling water in any season.”— Hunter R
From the pull-offs on each side of the road, pass a kiosk to follow the creek past gorgeous hardwood forests. The trail climbs along its length, although you'll be so flush with anticipation to reach the falls that you'll hardly notice it.
Upon reaching an opening in the forest, enjoy the gorgeous Tinker Falls as it flows in a curtain of water (or ice) in front of you. Those who'd like to, can easily climb the scree at the base of the falls to reach the cave behind and enjoy a different perspective.
When you've had your fill of the falls, simply return the way you came, or continue up the hillside left of the falls to reach a junction with the regional Finger Lakes Trail.
