Kane Falls is an officially named waterfall, listed on the USGS GNIS.  Our picture and info on this waterfall were provided by a contributor.

From the parking area, there ia a pathway to the top of the falls.  There are posted signs on some of the land so, for some time, we had indicated on this page that perhaps some of the property was private but that some might be public.  We received an email in July 2017 that "Kane Falls is totally privately owned".  No reference was given in the email as to the relationship between the sender and the property owner, but we assume this to be true.

Satellite images of this area show that this waterfall divides around an island, creating two "bottoms" of this falls.

The Halfway Creek empties into the Champlain Canal at Fort Ann.  The water from this then flows into the Head of Lake Champlain.  The flow then goes north through Canada on the Richelieu River and empties into the St. Lawrence River.
