New York - Tinker Falls & Jones Hill

GWH Official: Tinker Falls, Jones Hill, + Beak & Skiff

Join us for our Girls Who Hike NY — Central New York Autumn Event!

10:15am - Meet at the Tinker Falls parking area on Route 91.

10:30am - Hike 2.3 miles roundtrip with 644ft elevation gain to the summit of Jones Hill.

12pm - Upon descending Jones Hill, we will check out Tinker Falls which is .5 miles roundtrip from our parking area. The flow might not be very impressive this time of year, but it’s still a great spot. There is also a steep stone staircase which leads up behind the falls.

12:30pm (ish) - Head back to our cars and drive the 20 minutes to Beak & Skiff 1911 Orchards, where we’ll grab an appetizer and taste hard cider in their tasting room.

Hope to see you there. :)
