The spectacular Hector Falls is best seen from Seneca Lake, however the upper portion of the waterfall is easily viewed from the NY 414 bridge that travels right next to the falls. The bridge over Falls Creek is 3.4 miles north of Watkins Glen along NY 414. The shoulder of the road is wide on both sides of the road as well as both sides of the bridge for parallel parking.

Be very careful getting out of your vehicle as well as walking along this very busy road. The GPS coordinates of the bridge is N42 25.083 W76 52.009 for those who have a GPS devise. Hector Falls is over 100 feet high, although you will only get a partial of the waterfall from the bridge it's still an impressive waterfall to see, especially after heavy rains or spring snow melt. Look below for a picture and a map of Hector Falls.
