Distance: 0.1 mile roundtrip (less than 5 minutes!). No elevation gain. Easily accessible waterfall (40 ft. tall) on the Raquette River, in the Adirondacks. Beautiful foamy cascade with picnic tables by the river.

This short, wide waterfall makes for an easy, all-seasons excursion into the Adirondack area, particularly beautiful as leaves start to turn in the fall.

From the trailhead, you will already hear the sound of rushing water – simply follow the trailhead from North Point Road to the falls!

Bring a picnic lunch to eat beside the falls. Afterwards, you can explore the paths along the riverbank, or go swimming (please no climbing on/jumping from the falls). There is also a canoe launch above the falls, which can be used for boating in the river.

This is a popular trail, so avoid weekends if you mind the company.
