Gill Brook on the Adirondack Mountain Reserve is one of the more heavily waterfall-populated waterways in the Adirondacks.
One of the first waterfalls you will encounter along Gill Brook is “The Flume”. While this is a relatively small waterfall, its surroundings are magnificent!
A short spur trail with a sign reading “The Flume” directs you to the left, off of Lake Road. This leads to a large and very deep pool that forms at the base of this waterfall which sits back in a small, steep gorge. A perfect spot for cooling off on a hot day!
The waterfall itself is approximately ten to fifteen feet in height and has two drops as the flow drops and then deflects and fans out off of a boulder.
Gill Brook is a popular destination due to the large number of waterfalls, including Artists Falls, that can be found along the way up to the Fish Hawk Cliffs and Indian Head.
