Know Before You Go
Take I 90 to US Route 219 and follow it south for 11 miles. Take the NY-391 exit toward Boston/Hamburg and turn left onto Boston State Road. Take the 3rd left onto NY-277 (Herman Hill Road) and follow it for just over a mile and a half. It becomes Boston Ridge Road. Take a sharp left on Seufert Rd and park immediately on the right. The trail starts about 1.5 miles south of the park entrance. Some segments of the trail are well-marked, later on you need to follow the creek bed. It's not a long trail, but depending on recent rainfall, the path can be very slick. There are some very steep grades and elevation changes. Every year there are several major accidents in this area of the park due to people going off trail and trekking down the ravine at points off the path, resulting in severe falls. In a typical season there is at least one fatality. Travel guides suggest visiting the falls from mid-fall through spring as in the summer months the rain might be insufficient to feed the water flow.
