Putnam Mt. Quadrangle

It is our understanding that this waterfall is on private property and is not viewable from the road or any other public area.  We are also making our best effort to identify the waterway that it is on.  The creek is not labeled on maps but appears to be the outlet of the Sly Pond.

Despite the fact that it is not publicly accessible, this is an officially named waterfall.  It is one of three waterfalls in Washington County listed on the USGS GNIS.

If anyone has any information on this waterfall or pictures of it, we would like to hear from you.

The outlet of Sly Pond flows into the Halfway Creek just west of Fort Ann.  This empties into the Champlain Canal at Fort Ann.  The water from this then flows into the Head of Lake Champlain.  The flow then goes north through Canada on the Richelieu River and empties into the St. Lawrence River.
