Location: Central Schuyler County, 0.5 of a mile south of the Village of Montour Falls
on Havana Glen Road, off of Route 14.
Havana Glen Park, which is open from mid May to mid October, features several picnic areas, a playground area, ball field, camping area, and the sensational Eagle Cliff Falls. An admission fee is charged.
A trail, which starts at a parking area located on the east side of the park, follows along the northern bank of McClure Creek. As you walk the 1/4 mile long trail, which has several sets of stairs, you will pass several small waterfalls. This refreshingly cool and beautiful glen also contains a variety of ferns, lichens and mosses.
The trail ends in the amphitheater of Eagle Cliff Falls. The falls, which faces northwest, is 41 feet high with a 15 foot wide crest. It is named for the large natural image of an eagle’s head found on the northeast cliff face of the amphitheater. As McClure Creek tumbles over the crest of the falls, it first drops roughly 7 feet to a small ledge. The creek then rebounds off this ledge and makes a dramatic free fall into the deep plunge pool below.
