Lyndonville Map

Location: Northwestern Orleans County on Johnson Creek in the Village of Lyndonville.

    Starting from the intersection of Routes 104 and 63, follow Route 63 (Lyndonville Road) north for 4 miles to the Village of Lyndonville. Find a place to park on the side of the road near the Yates Community Library. From the library walk north to Johnson Creek. The dam will be to your left (west).

    I know, I know, it is not a waterfall. I have had a few requests to do a web page on it. It is worth taking a look at if your in the area.
