Whitaker Falls - Middle Curtain

Whitaker Falls - Middle Curtain

Just outside Martinsburg, New York, is a municipal camp ground and park next to Roaring Brook. From the east end of the campground, a trail leads to the riverbank beyond the park boundary maybe 500 yards to a place where we found a blue rope to assist our descent into the gorge. Wlking back upstream, we found the lower falls, a pretty little cascade about 12 feet high. After climbing the edge of the lower falls, we rounded a bend and found the middle falls, a curtain of water about 25 feet high and flowing about 5 feet off of the cliff face. Yes we could walk behind the falls!
