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.)
Camp Brockway, a rustic community-styled lodge in a classic forest location, is just the spot for weddings, family reunions and company outings. Also available are the Falls Shelter and Woods Trail Shelter.
Pratt’s Falls is often the site for national, state and local orienteering events that allow participants to navigate through a marked course using only a map and compass.
