Fall Brook Falls is a 70 foot waterfall near Geneseo. There is a short hike (30 minute) to walk along the stream. It takes about [WWW]45 minutes by car to get to there from Rochester. Getting to the base of the waterfall (and the attached trail) requires traversing a fairly steep canyon wall. It's a great way to spend an afternoon.

Unfortunately the falls is on private property and trespassing is not allowed.
