Pratts Falls

Pratts Falls most popular attraction is the scenic trail leading to the beautiful 137 foot waterfall.  There are other trails on the west side of the falls and gorge that are also worth exploring.  There are over five miles of trails in the park.  This geological wonder, formed by retreating glaciers, was the site of Onondaga County's first mill operation in 1796.

For those looking for a loop hike, try doing the North Rim & West Branch Trails for a 3.5 mile loop around the park.  This loop takes you near the gorge, in the forest and open fields.  This hike is fairly easy with some up and downs.  For a trail map see the Onondaga County Pratts Falls Park website.

DIRECTIONS:  From Jamesville, drive south on NY 91 for about 6 miles to Pratt's Falls Road. Turn left onto this road, and follow the signs for "Pratt's Falls County Park." There is a $1 admission fee per vehicle in season.
