An out flow from forked lake, this waterfall offers some nice picture opportunities year round. Some people also bring tubes to slide down them in the summer time. Looked fun, but don't want to get stuck in the undertow.

Definately an easy little hike, but just a precaution for the not-so-sure-footed. Take your time. Lots of families and couples with dogs. My unofficial survey said most dogs were a little fearful of the falls. Beautiful spot, and so glad we came.

Beautiful falls surrounded by flat rocks and a few picnic tables, about a 2 min walk from parking area!

This place never changes yet never gets old. So beautiful, no matter what time of year. Be sure to visit above the falls.

A short drive from Motel Long Lake and Cottages. It is the beginning of Long Lake and always a welcome site to see and hear!

Beautiful falls and area for hiking. Easy access and just a short walk to the Falls just outside of Long Lake.

Stopped by to see the falls after viewing them from a sea plane ride. This is a beautiful area in the Adirondacks with incredibly easy access from the road. Plenty of parking and an easy stroll to the falls and picnic areas.

We visited in early June and the water was really roaring at this time. I think it would have been even prettier and more dramatic looking if you could have seen some of the boulders that were under all of that rushing water (which I...More
