Description   EN   

Dropping nearly 30 feet over the Onondaga escarpment Glen Falls provided the power for several mills that lined this part of Ellicott Creek. It's location here, where the main road from Batavia to Buffalo crossed the creek made it a logical location for the community that eventually came to be known as Williamsville.

9 20 August 2015 Mr.Yuck Cache archived

Cache was archived. Funny thing is, I was at the park with my wife and son sometime in the Spring, and I saw that cache intact. I am authorized to archive this for GOF, seeing as he's putting a wood floor in at my house as we speak. Laughing

2 16 August 2015 Bon Echo Didn't find it

Headed south of the border again this weekend (well, actually a lot more east and just a bit south) but this time it was adults only, no kids (first time in 8 years that we've been able to say that). We traveled to the Finger Lakes area to enjoy a romantic anniversary weekend - by romantic, I mean stopping to find caches, garage sales, thrift shops, driving secondary highways, stuff like that.
In the end, we found 6 OCNA caches (and dnf'd two), also visited the oldest geocache in the state and picked up two other gc.com caches plus a few qualifiers for some TerraCaching locationless caches. A good weekend all around.
This was the second of the two dnf's - two BIT caches along #5. This was our second time to Glen Falls, what a great park and the falls was alive thanks to the recent rains. At the posted coordinates we found the back of a sign which clearly had some things stuck to it but they're gone now - just a munzee (see photo)

Spotted a Munzee, but no BIT. I didn't expand my search very far, as this was Muggle Central today.

This is a great park, waterfall and area.  I really enjoyed my time here.

1 12 July 2012 DudleyGrunt Found it

3394.  Hitting this group of 4 Amherst BITs before my event, this evening on the way to 100/3400.  This is such an awesome park on a relatively small bit of land.  I'm jealous, this isn't in Maryland, near me.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
