Northern New York Waterfalls 

Everton Falls


About 14 miles south of Malone on NY 30, in the hamlet of Duane, CR 14 intersects.  A little more than seven miles west of here, you will come to a canoe access parking area on the right.  Just beyond that there is a seasonally maintained access road on the right.  Park on the roadside near there.

Waterfall videoAlthough you can see the falls from the road, directly across from this seasonal access road, there is a trailhead which leads to the crest of the waterfall.  From there you can make your way down the shore without a lot of effort for down-river views.  There are also other routes from a hundred or so feet past this road which leads to an area a little further downstream, but these aren't clearly defined trails.

Above the main falls, there is a section of rapids that starts with about a three foot plunge.

The main waterfall is two drops on either side of a small island in the middle of the river.  This island contains a half-dozen pine trees and a couple of hardwoods.  The channel on the near side is ten to twelve feet wide dropping in two or three steps.  on the other side of the island, the channel is quite a bit wider, probably forty feet and is a single plunge. 

The St. Regis River flows north into Canada and then empties into the St. Lawrence River a short distance downstream from the New York/Quebec border.
