  • Probably the best waterfall in the area. It's an easy short walk after the drive in. I've spent many years camping and hiking nearby. We also love to take photos here for ourselves and sessions for others. The most recent one was an engagement session, it was stunning! ~ Out of the Ordinary Photography
  • Very rocky, unpaved road with gigantic potholes you need to watch out for on the way in. Beautiful, rewarding view for such a short hike. Combine with the summit trail for a view of southern Lake George to make it a nice afternoon trip.
  • Beautiful place to take in nature and relax. Longer drive, but worth it.
  • Go fish you some trout folks lol. Fly rod friendly
  • After a scenic drive down a dirt road, it's a short 10 minute walk to the Falls. A very scenic area, relatively peaceful and quiet. Recommend bug spray---mosquitos were everywhere.
