Although the property surrounding these falls is posted, they are close enough to the road that you can get pictures from the right-of-way.  Although there are a number of signs in the area indicating that there is no parking on the Shelving Rock Road, if you are traveling with a companion who can stay in the car, you technically are "Standing" and not "Parking".  Please note that the coordinates we have given are approximation.

Shelving Rock Brook empties into Lake George.  The water from this then flows through La Chute into Lake Champlain.  The flow then goes north through Canada on the Richelieu River and empties into the St. Lawrence River.
