Stream/River/Watershed: West Branch Oswegatchie River
Height of Falls/Type: 25 ft
Level of Difficulty/Hiking Distance: Moderate to hard .2 mile walk to the old bridge.
Comments/Notes: The trail head register is right at the parking area. The trail is very easy to follow. Just before the footbridge you will see a cairn on the right side of the trail. There are several spur trails that lead to the falls. Use caution around the top of the falls. You will be on smooth rock and this can be slippery.
Side note: As you are leaving the parking lot and headed back at .2 miles, look for a brown log cabin type home. In their backyard in the distance you can see another waterfall. It appears to be a slide waterfall.
