Going back into the previous years, the situation of Lower Oneonta Falls was better as there was a flat and almost uniform platform of pebbles and small rocks and it was much easier to stroll the length of it. It was so easy that many of the times you don’t even need to get wet. But the3n after of severe storms came and there was a log jammed near the mouth of the canyon which invited a creek and it start6ed pooling and shifting the rocks towards the opening. Now due to this there were several pools in between having water from knees to chest length through which you have to make your way or swim in order to reach the falls.
