Roadside Falls of Northern New York Volume 1, The Tri-Counties"

Roadside Falls of NNY Volume 1

 

For whatever reason, not everyone is interested in, or able to walk five or ten miles to view a waterfall.  The pages of this book will guide you to 50 readily accessible locations in three counties in the extreme north-western corner of Northern New York, known collectively in the area as the Tri-Counties.

All falls described are within 1/2 mile of a highway and many offer roadside views.  This is not intended to be a collection of magnificently tall descents or of the most popular falls in the area.  It is simply a list of pretty locations that are easy to get to.

Roadside Falls of Northern New York Volume 1, The Tri-Counties has been arranged so that the read can "tour" these falls somewhat sequentially.  Starting in St. Lawrence and proceeding through Jefferson and Lewis Counties, you will see that this region offers some pretty scenery, not far off the "beaten path".

Each waterfall is presented on a two-page spread with a full-page color photograph and descriptive text that includes driving directions, information and history of the falls and the area and access information. Sidebars feature handy at-a-glance information, such as the location, walk time, trail type, GPS coordinates and the size and type of waterfall.

This is the first of three volumes which feature "Roadside Falls" in the north country.

Roadside Falls of Northern New York Volume 2, The Adirondacks has been arranged so that the reader can "tour" these falls somewhat sequentially.  We start in Franklin and proceed through Clinton, Essex, Warren and Hamilton Counties.  These counties make up a significant portion of the Adirondack Park.  You will see that much of the beauty of the Adirondacks is quite easy to get to.

The Mohawk River is one of the longest rivers completely contained within New York State.  A major portion of it runs east-west through the center of the state.  This waterway, along with the Erie Canal, Oneida Lake, Oneida River and the Oswego River, form a water boundary defining the southern portion of the region we call Northern New York.

This book will guide you through 50 waterfall locations in seven counties, all or part of which are immediately north of these waterways.  All falls described are within 1/2 mile of a highway and many offer roadside views.  This is not intended to be a collection of magnificently tall descents or of the most popular falls in the area.  It is simply a list of pretty locations that are easy to get to.
