Chittenango Falls flowing after heavy rain

Chittenango Falls at Chittenango Falls State Park, New York.

Chittenango Falls is running full bore as heavy overnight rains filled Chittenango Creek. The 167 feet drop of the falls roared with water early Wednesday morning.

The New York State Park is a favorite spot for hiking and picnicking for Central New Yorkers. The falls were carved into bedrock that dates back to the Glacial Age 400 million years ago.

By mid-summer the falls often is reduced to a trickle as creek levels drop during the dry months.
