Wiscoy and Mills Mills Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This wedding cake falls has five distinct tiers, stretching over a quarter mile of stacked, polished shale. Stand at the midpoint of the Mill Street bridge over Wiscoy Creek and gaze southward, and you may be lulled into thinking you’re in the uplands of Yellowstone National Park. This fly-fishing paradise provides rushing water in all four seasons with smooth, flat areas at the waterfall’s base.

From this vantage point, you can see three sections of this falls—one that drops for 15 feet, another with a 25-foot drop, and a smaller cascade closest to you. There are actually five drops in all, so the Seneca Indians that settled in this area hundreds of years ago named it Wis Coy, meaning “five-fall brook.” The name now belongs to the village and the creek as well."

"Wiscoy is an Indian word meaning “five falls creek or brook.” As you stand on the bridge in the Village of Wiscoy, five tiers of waterfall are visible. They start with a pair of jagged edged 2-foot falls, then progress to a 15-foot tall cascade, then a 20-foot cascade. Far into the trees you can see the reflections of moving water from the top tier." Read more
