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.
