Northern New York Waterfalls 

Buck Brook Falls


This waterfall is west of High Falls and southwest of the Griffin Rapids seciton of the Oswegatchie.  It can only be reached by hiking into that area.  The suggested route is on a trail which starts at the end of Youngs Road in Star Lake.  This is about 7.5 miles, one-way.  The last portion is a bushwhack.

Five Ponds Quadrangle

This is a two drop waterfall in a fairly remote area southeast of Star Lake.  The upper drop of about six to eight feet is behind the people in the picture.  The brook levels out for a short period before the final drop shown.

Our thanks to Drew Reed for the information and picture of this location.

The The Buck Brook flows into that Oswegatchie River, which flows into the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg, New York.
