Emilie Jonas Falls features a tiered 65-foot fan and 6-foot cascade waterfall at the Emilie Jonas Nature Preserve in Lansing, New York.
Accessing Emilie Jonas Falls requires a difficult and steep hike down to and along Gulf Creek. The trail is ever-shifting because of natural erosion and loose stones, and the passage to the waterfall can be hard to follow or impossible to get to because of high water.
The nature preserve is named after Emilie Jonas, born in 1877 in Colfax County, Nebraska to recent immigrants from Czechoslovakia. Emily met Tomas Jonas, the son of homesteaders who were part of the Czech settlement in Clarkson, and emigrated to Lansing, where they farmed along Goodwin’s Mill Creek (today’s Gulf Creek).
