Tinker Falls is in Labrador Hollow Unique Area, which is near Tully, NY, about 25 minutes south of Syracuse. The falls are very close to the road- a five minute walk at a slow pace. If you go in winter, bring crampons as you'll need them to get up behind the falls. Also watch out for ice climbers, who frequent the falls in winter.

There's also some other nice hiking in the area- the trail through the bog at Labrador Pond is interesting, and there are nice views from the hang glider launching spot atop Jones Hill, 700 feet above the valley. Labrador Hollow is a narrow north-south valley that gets limited sunlight, and as a result, has an Adirondack bog ecosystem that you normally wouldn't expect to find so far south and at such low elevations.
