Palmyra-Macedon Aqueduct Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is a man-made waterfall that owes its existence to the building of the Erie Canal. When the canal was first built, engineers didn’t know how to keep the canal from flooding so they had to segregate it from natural waterways. Aqueducts were built to span creeks that had to be crossed such as Ganargua. The canal waters were carried over the creek in a wooden trough. Eventually as technology improved, flooding could be controlled in other ways and the canal bed was moved into river and creek beds as it was enlarged."
