Summary: This is a pretty waterfall, and an easy one to visit. If you are visiting Watkin's Glen, it will only take you a few minutes to drive to Montour Falls and have a look.

She-Qua-Ga Falls is in downtown Montour Falls. There are signs, and the falls are hard to miss. That being said, I did manage to drive right past it the first time without noticing it. There is a small park at the base of the falls. You can also drive up to the bridge over the falls.

There are apparently several other falls in the immediate area. Aunt Sarahs' falls is a roadside falls on Route 14 just north of Montour Falls, but it did not have much water and was not very impressive.

Watkins Glen is just three miles north of Montour Falls, and Eagles Nest Falls is just a few miles to the south. Buttermilk Falls State Park, Lucifer Falls, Taughannock Falls, and probably a hundred others are within an hours drive.
