     New York’s south-central topography, centered on Schuyler County, is a favorable land for creating waterfalls. In a tri-county area, nearly two dozen waterfalls are a large part of the appeal in the Finger Lakes Region. Scoured by advancing and retreating glaciers during the last Ice Age, the region is well imprinted with glens, gorges, and a string of huge Finger Lakes.McClure Creek Cascades - Havana Glen Park, Montour Falls, New York
     Pictured here is the gorgeous Eagle Cliff Falls found in Havana Glen. Overshadowed by neighboring Ithaca Falls and a chorus of cascades at Watkins Glen, Havana Glen gets little press. Still in all, this is a beautiful little city park, complete with a picnic area, campground and playground. At the far end of the park, a quarter mile trail follows along McClure Creek. The first water feature is tiered cascade, as the creek descends a series of rock steps. Not too far up the trail, a series of steps leads beside the 40 foot Eagle Cliff Falls as it pours out of a deep gorge. The small gorge is enclosed by steep sided cliffs, made up of layer upon layer of stained limestone. Naturally carved into the rock, some visitors have a difficult time seeing the spread-wing eagle profile. Can you see it ?
