The 60 foot Talcottville Falls is located on the Sugar River north of the small hamlet of Talcottville in Lewis County along NY 12D. The waterfall can be seen from the bridge, however a short 0.1 mile path leads down to this beautiful waterfall. The path is actually a rough woods road that you'll find at the end of the guardrail driving south on NY 12D. There are posted signs as you approach the waterfalls, however we are unaware of the situation at this location. The book Waterfalls of New York State does not mention any private property problems in their description of this waterfall.

The Sugar River joins the Black River further downstream. We suggest you also make the short trip to see Lyons Falls and Agers Falls which are located nearby.

Directions: From Boonville take NY 12D north out of the village and through the small hamlet of Talcottville. Cross the bridge over the Sugar River and when it is safe, turn around and head south. The shoulders on the bridge are wide, so you can stop and check out the falls from a distance on the bridge. Then drive across the bridge and just prior to the end of the guardrail, pullover and park on the wide shoulder of the road (before the guardrail ends). You will see the path (rough road) start just after the guardrail ends. Walk along the rough road to the waterfall.

The GPS coordinates for the view on the bridge is N43 32.278 W75 21.969 and for the start of the path to the falls is N43 32.143 W75 21.951 for those who have a GPS devise.
