West Pierrepont Quadrangle

We have not yet been to Pelkys Falls.  It is about 1.5 miles upstream from the bridge mentioned in the direction side-bar.  There is a road on either side of the river that comes within 2000 feet or so of this waterfall, but it is our understanding that the land surrounding it is private.  We haven't been able to verify that.  We also do not know if this area is accessible by kayak by paddling upstream.

If anyone has any information or pictures of this location, please contact us.

The north branch joins the main channel a little over four miles downstream from this waterfall.  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.
