Keene Quadrangle

This is a spectacular drop of over 100 feet, but all approaches are on the private property of Elk Lake Lodge.  Lodge guests, however, can boat to Wagon Wheel Landing from which it is just over 2 mi. of easy walking to the base of the falls.

It is interesting that this is an officially named waterfall, but since the USGS data base is listed in order of latitude when searched by county, we couldn't determine if its alphabetical order was by "T" or by "F"!  We have listed it on our alphabetical list under the letter F.

If anyone has any pictures of this waterfall, we would be very interested in hearing from you.

The West Inlet is a small stream that flows into Elk Lake.  From there, the water follows a river known as The Branch into the Schroon River, which flows into the Hudson.  This, in turn, empties into the Atlantic Ocean in New York City.
