Northern New York Waterfalls 

Raquette Falls


On NY 3 between Tupper Lake and Saranac Lake, just east of Panther Mountain and just south of Upper Saranac Lake, the Coreys Road will exit to the south.  Follow this for about 3 miles.  About 0.2 mile after crossing Stoney Creek there is a parking lot.  The trailhead is at the back of the parking lot, behind the registration kiosk.

Tupper Lake Quadrangle

This is the second of three waterfalls along this stretch of the Raquette River.  Due to the length of the hike, it would stand to reason that you will visit this one after Lower Falls.  Please refer to that page for common information.  Simply continue on the trail along the river for about another 0.1 mile to get here.

Raquette Falls is a two part drop.  Rapids above reach the first drop of about two feet.  About 20' further downstream, there is a horseshoe drop of another six feet.  

The Raquette River empties into the St. Lawrence River in Massena, New York.
