Honeoye Falls

The village of Honeoye Falls is named not only for the creek that runs through the hamlet, but also for the two falls that are located in the town. Strolling through the village is accompanied by the roaring sound of the upper falls. The upper falls cascades down the concrete dam 30 feet before going down the second set of falls. Walking in the creek is not allowed, but a walking path runs the length of the creek, where visitors can enjoy the spray and mist of the falls, especially during the heavy spring runoff season. The falls and creek walk are open year-round and is an easy walk. Pets are allowed on leashes and the walk is disabled accessible.
