Home » Places Scoby Dam and Route 219 Scoby Dam is most commonly known because of its trail and of course the dam but it is also has a lot of geological elements that have built the area. The bedrock surrounding the Scoby Dam area was formed during the Devonian time period and is mostly fissile shale and siltstone. The soil in area is made up of very fine grained clay that is prone to landslides. Any clearing of vegetation also makes landslides more probable. The landslides have caused damage to the area and have affected the construction of Route 219 and the major bridge(s) over Cattaraugus Creek. There is a cave that you can barely see that you have to climb up in order to actually get a good look. It is said that you shouldn’t go in it because it is really small may exist due to fractured and unstable shale layers.
