Elmer Falls


Take the Belfort Road from the village of Croghan toward Belfort.  Turn right on the Effley Falls Road, just before reaching the hamlet of Belfort.  In 2.5 miles, there will be a road exiting to the left.  This leads to the power plants at Effley Falls and Elmer Falls.

Croghan Quadrangle

An officially named waterfall, a hydro-electric facility has been at this location for many years.  There is still a waterfall at the base of this dam.  Directions to this facility are not really of value because when you reach the road to the plants, you will encounter gates and posted signs and can not enter.  It appears that the only access is by permission from the power company or on the river.  

We will have to be content with our view of it from Bing Maps.

The Beaver River flows into the Black River, which empties into Lake Ontario at the Black River Bay, just southwest of the village of Dexter.
