Upper Oneonta Falls is known to a few local waterfall-hunters, but it remains a hidden gem to most regular folks. Few who walk the popular Horsetail/Oneonta loop know that there is another secret waterfall hiding just a short splash up Oneonta Creek from the bridge over the creek. Curious Gorge has all the details you’ll need to know to find this hidden gem!
Behind Upper Oneonta Falls is a deep dark cave with a nice flat floor. The cave is hidden behind a huge log. The log makes a nice perch for either picnic or romance. The cave is so big and dark that you might want to bring a light (or iPhone) so you can crawl thru it to the far exit.
