Postcard Falls

Postcard Falls Professional Review and Guide

"On the border between Brighton and Penfield is this delightful wander to Postcard Falls, a bubbling cascade on Allen’s Creek, secreted by the surrounding mature woods and the glen’s steep hills.

If you don’t know about Corbett’s Glen, it’s not a surprise that you’ve missed it—this 73-acre preserve is surrounded by suburban housing tracts, hidden by the steep limestone walls of Allen’s Creek Valley. Back in the 1990s the then-fledgling Genesee Land Trust led a campaign to raise the money the Town of Brighton needed to save this special place from encroaching developers. Thanks to the success of the trust’s efforts, today you can walk 2 miles of uninterrupted trails along the creek and through unspoiled woods and fields, or sit by Postcard Falls and watch the creek’s waters cascade over a series of rocky ledges."
