  • A long ride but sooo worth it. Stop on the way and buy fresh baked goods, honey, and other items from the stands along the road. We did fine in a minivan and had no issue. You ride for a long time on ...  more »
  • Don't let the drive on the unpaved road scare you, this was a beautiful falls to visit. We visited in November, so there was no summertime crowd.  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • This is a beautiful location. Be very careful exploring the side's of the falls. The needles are slippery and can lead to awful falls.
  • Nice walk with small waterfalls and bit of swim at the end.
  • Great views for a short walk. 1.7 miles one way took about 35 minutes up and 30 minutes back down. The trail is well kept and easy to walk. The trailhead is about a 45 minute drive from Lake George, the same start for Black Mountain. The drive there takes you on a dirt road for the the last 20 minutes of the drive. Great short hike altogether!
