Sylvan Falls Quadrangle

In the village of Parishville, Catherine Street is the first street immediately north of the St. Regis River's west branch.  This will become the Sylvan Falls Road after leaving the village.

A few miles down this road, the pavement ends.  In a few more miles you encounter a sign that indicates that all of the property from that point on is private and posted.  Eventually, you will reach a section on the road where there are gates blocking you from proceeding.  Signs there identify it as a private club.  Kingsley Falls is beyond this point, although we estimate that it is not a great distance.  Without permission from the club, the only other option is by paddling up the river.

This is another waterfall that is formed on both sides of an island.  Our thanks to Jason Phippen who gave us permission to post this pic here after posting it on our Facebook page.  This shot is of the river left side.  Also, thanks to another anonymous contributor who had access to this area.  His photos are of the right channel.

The West Branch of the St. Regis River flows into the main channel in Winthrop.  The St. Regis River then flows to the St. Lawrence River almost on the US/Canada border a few miles northeast of Massena, New York.
