There are trails that lead to this
area but we don't know at this point whether this stretch
can be seen from them.
||West of Tupper
This is an officially
named stretch of rapids on the oswegatchie River about three miles
downstream from High Falls.
There is a trail that leads to High
Falls that goes very close to Griffin Rapids but we don't know if
it is close enough to view. Topographical maps show this area
to be very swampy so we also don't know if you can get off the trail
and close enough to see the stretch. We do know that it is
possible to canoe/kayak from Wanakena to High Falls which means
you would have to go through here. Since it is rapids, it
would stand to reason that a portage would be necessary, so that
would imply that it is passable. Having said all of that,
the topo maps also show that through this entire stretch of over
three miles, there are no coordinate lines which would suggest that
the region is quite level. We are continuing to research this.
If anyone has pictures or information on this area, please
