Location: North central Monroe County, in northern end of the City of Rochester, on
Norton Creek flows from a stone culvert and over a 12 foot thick overhanging layer of Irondequoit Limestone. The creek free-falls roughly 15 feet and then cascades down another 20 feet or so over the reddish colored Queenston Shale. The waters then flow through a narrow boulder filled channel, down a gently sloping cascade and into the Genesee River.
