|Length of hike:
Our first note is that we have not yet been to this waterfall.
We have had it listed for several years but different websites
showed different info on its access. These instructions.
We still have some confusion as to the length of the hike.
One on-line source stated it was 1.75 miles, one-way.
Another, with some fairly specific instructions totaled 2.25,
one-way. Comparing this on a topographical map indicated
that it should be considerably longer than those numbers.
The trail starts at campsite 87. From there, walk
across a large open field to a registration box where a
self-guided nature tour begins. This would imply that all
the info you will need to get to the waterfall will be given
This location is actually a series of waterfalls.
Some on-line sources refer to it as rapids. A 15'
wide section of the river drops for about 1/2 mile in length.
If anyone has any information or pictures of these waterfalls,
we would be very interested in
The south branch of the Moose River joins the middle branch just
northeast of McKeever to become the Moose River. This continues
into the Black River in Lyons Falls which empties into Lake Ontario
near Dexter in Jefferson County.
