Grab a book and enjoy the Falls at Wadhams
The 20-foot Falls at Wadhams are visible from the bridge that spans the river as it flows over a large area and then into a single drop before making its way through a long flume under the bridge.
Next to the river is the Wadhams Free Library where you can grab a book and relax at riverside. Just downriver past the bridge you can see a functioning hydro-electric plant. Hydro-electric power plants are a common sight along the waterways in the north.
To get there: GPS: 44°13.826’N 73°27.651’W – From Elizabethtown (junction of Routes 9N South & 9), drive east on Route 9N for ~4.3 miles. As soon as you pass under the Adirondack Northway (I-87), turn left onto Route 59/Youngs Road and head northeast for 2.3 miles. When you come to Route 8, turn right, and then, after 0.1 mile, bear left onto Route 22. Just before crossing over the bridge spanning the Boquet River, turn left into the parking area for the Wadhams Free Library. The waterfall can be readily seen from behind the library or from the north side of the bridge.
This waterfall can be found in the Adirondack Waterfall Guide by Russell Dunn
