Falls with Natural Bridge

This waterfall, with a natural bridge in front of it, is located in the area covered by the Western New York Waterfall Survey. When I talked with the owner he was extremely concerned about people visiting the falls. This is a very dangerous area. A person fell over the cliff by the falls and died. Out of respect to the owner's rights, I have decided not to give out the name or location of the falls.

The natural bridge is about 18 inches thick and has a span of about 14 feet. In times of high water, the creek flows over the natural bridge, obscuring it from view. I first visited the falls about 1977. I remember that the creek was very low but do not remember seeing the natural bridge at that time. This photo was taken on November 06, 1999.

A friend tells me that he visited the falls in July of 2003 and that the natural bridge had collapsed.
