Hiking and Multi-Use Herkimer County Trails.

Some trails may be designed for multi-use, which means during the summer, they could be a combination of hiking or bicycling. Please be sure to check before you start out biking to be sure it is allowed on that particular trail.

Faville Falls


From Dolgeville proceed westerly out of town on Spencer Street (Peckville Road). From the first intersection continue 0.7 miles. The trailhead parking lot is on the left of the road just after crossing a small brook.



0.9 Mile



The trail has no trail markers. The trail begins by crossing a metal pedestrian bridge over Brockett’s Brook. From the bridge you can view the cascade of water as it fl ows downstream. After crossing the bridge walk along the top of the ridge parallel to the brook. Although not clearly marked, stay on the slowly descending path.


DO NOT take any shortcuts down steep slopes. The trail then curves around broadly as you slowly descend to the bottom. As you near the bottom the trail passes a few picnic tables near the brook. The trail now changes direction back upstream for a short distance. From here you have a scenic view back at the waterfalls.
