In Clarendon, the waterfalls is an enduring landmark

CLARENDON – Orleans County is home to several waterfalls, but I think the one in Clarendon is the most visible.

This waterfalls is along Route 237, just a little south of the Route 31A intersection. I stopped by this morning at about 7:20 a.m. When I parked in a spot by a small park, I could hear the roar and splash of the 25-foot-high waterfalls.

This one isn’t as big or as majestic as the nearby waterfalls in Holley, but this is no weak trickle. Clarendon has long been proud of this site, which was next to a mill long ago. Some of the foundation from the mill remains in a hill by the waterfalls.

The waterfalls is fed from Sandy Creek. It is more powerful after a heavy rain.
