This is truly an unexpected Beauty!
Mill Park Falls, (GPS: 43°19.276’N 73°50.385’W) located on an outlet stream to Lake Luzerne called Stewart Brook, is one of those smaller waterfalls that are often forgotten or passed over because of bigger area waterfalls. Rockwell Falls, located on the Hudson River a short way downriver from where Stewart Brook empties into the river, is much bigger and much more visible to visitors to the area.
Not to be upstaged, Mill Park Falls is a beautiful escape from over traveled streets and the encroaching rural feel of Rockwell Falls. This is not to say Rockwell Falls is not beautiful, but Mill Park is a must visit while in the area. Easily accessed by the well-maintained park trails, the waterfall can be found by following the trails downstream and past an old log cabin. The unique placement of the boulders on the stream adds a very calming feel to the waterfall and during much of the year the water is high enough to create a very picturesque scene for photographers.
The waterfall is not much over 15′ in height, but makes for a perfect spot to visit almost any time of the year, even if only passing through the area. (The sunset was captured at the parking area next to the lake)
The park has a strict no pet policy and parking is located across the street close to Lake Luzerne. If you bring a pet with you, make sure they are safe and comfortable, especially on a warm day.
