Pratt’s Falls Park

Pratt’s Falls Park

Scenic trails leading to a 137' waterfall beckon visitors to bring a well-stocked picnic basket and a sense of adventure. This geological wonder, formed by retreating glaciers, was the site of Onondaga County's first mill operation in 1796. Picnic opportunities abound. In addition to hiking, Pratt's Falls is popular for archery. (Please note: Mountain Biking is not permitted.)
