Cascade Lake Falls
Cascade Lake Falls forms on the shoulder of Cascade Mountain, the 36th highest peak in New York. The unnamed waterway flows down the “#7 slide” on side of of the mountain between Upper and Lower Cascade Lakes.
This sizeable waterfall begins to take shape halfway down and continues past the tree-line where it ultimately joins Lower Cascade Lake and makes its way out on Cascade Brook. The base of the falls is accessible through a mild bushwhack.
The falls are a popular ice-climbing destination in the Winter and are enjoyed by many at the park located between the lakes in the warmer months. Cascade Mountain is one of the most popular High Peaks and is often an Aspiring 46er’s first peak along with Porter.
