Diana Quadrangle

Much of the road leading to this location is not paved.  There are actually four falls at this point.  On our first trip here, it was no problem hiking the trail downstream.  The last time we were there, the trail had become so overgrown that it was a significant bushwhack.  Falls #1 is about 1/10 of a mile downstream from the bridge.  It is a drop of about 8 to 10'.

Falls #2, a 6 to 8' drop, is located just downstream of the bridge.  You will pass it on your way to Falls #1.

Falls #3 and 4, which are larger falls, are located about 1/4 mile upstream from the bridge.  The trails to these are not clear and bushwhacking is in order.  According to our information, the easiest hike is actually up the river bed, but we have not yet attempted this route.

If you enjoy trout fishing, you may want to bring your gear with you on this hike.  We have been told it is a great location.

The West Branch of the Oswegatchie joins the main channel a few miles downstream, just west of the hamlet of Talcville in the town of Edwards.  This then flows to the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg.
