Our thanks to
Stacy Brown for providing the information and pictures.
It is a nice hike, a bit rooty and rocky but worth it.
At 0.4 mile, you will meet the first part of the stream to your
left and you will see tiny spills. As you follow the trail
you can look down and wander to individual cascades and
multisteps.As you continue up the trail you will defitnitely
start to hear heavier flow. There is a foot-bridge at 0.65
mile and when you come to the second foot-bridge, this is
where the main waterfalls are, cascades to the right and one to
the left back that fans out over a very big slab of rock.
The outlet of Nine Corner Lake flows into West Lake, Canada Lake
and Lily Lake before exiting through Sprite Creek to East Canada
Creek. This makes its way to the Mohawk and then Hudson
River before reaching the Atlantic Ocean in New York City.
