Three Ponds Mt. Quadrangle

There is a sign-in box at the trailhead.  Follow the trail marked by yellow markers for about 1.3 miles where you will come to a clearing at the creek.  At this point, head left toward Rock Lake for about 1/2 mile.  There is a clearing at the falls and a little further upstream there is a foot bridge over the creek. 

Our thanks to Stacy Brown for the pictures and information on this waterfall.

The West Stony Creek North Branch flows into the West Stony Creek about five miles from this location.  That empties into the Sacandaga River just north of Northville.  The Sacandaga Flows through the Great Sacandaga Lake and merges with the Hudson River in Lake Luzerne.  The Hudson empties into the Atlantic Ocean in New York City.
