Jimmy Creek Falls

Jimmy Creek Falls Professional Review and Guide

"An easy walk through a magical, fragrant wood leads to a hidden falls surrounded by lush greenery. If these woods are not enchanted, they certainly ought to be: verdant with moss as thick as plushy Berber carpeting, and fragrant with the combined natural scents of hemlock, balsam, and pine. A sienna ribbon of last year’s needles leads you through the woods to the waterfall—and the falls itself, a diminutive cascade compared to many in the area, scribes such a lacy pattern over the rocks that they shimmer in the sunlight that dapples through the leafy upper story. Ferns and other ground-hugging vegetation crowd around the trickling falls, framing it with life. You won’t want to miss this short but lively hike.

From the Adirondack Northway (I-87), take exit 13N to NY 9N/US 9 toward Ballston Spa. Follow NY 9N 4.5 miles to NY 29 West. Turn left onto NY 29 West and drive 23.2 miles to a traffic circle. Take the first exit onto NY 30/NY 8 North. Continue about 10 miles, cross Lake Pleasant, and turn right onto NY 8. In 1.2 miles, you will reach a parking area."
