Hermon Quadrangle

The land surrounding this waterfall is all private and for the most part, posted.  The landowners, who operate a business here and we know, graciously granted us access through their land.  Otherwise, the best access it to follow the directions to Harts Falls and then walk the 1/2 mile or so up the river bank.

Located just upstream from Harts Falls, this is a peaceful, idyllic area.  Since it is private, the only sounds you will hear are from the birds and of course, the waterfall.  It wouldn't surprise us that deer, and perhaps even bear, drink from these waters.

Our thanks to the landowners for sharing their little slice of heaven with us.

The Grass River flows into the St. Lawrence River in Massena, in St. Lawrence County.

Note:  Depending upon which map or sign you are using, this river is referred to as either Grasse or Grass.  Officially, it is Grass.
