Lake Bonaparte Quadrangle

The GorgeAs the directions and data bars say, this waterfall is on private property.  Having lived in this general area for close to forty years, two different people had told me about growing up near this falls and spending time at it when they were young.  It has been known simply as the Gorge for as long as any of them can remember.

The primary waterfall is at the top of the descent.  This is a close to vertical drop followed by a series of rapids-like drops over the next fifty or so feet of the creek.

Sawyer Creek flows into Matoon Creek which empties into the Oswegatchie River just upstream of Gouverneur.  The Oswegatchie flows into the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg.
