The 5 Most Majestic Falls in New York’s Adirondack Park [VIDEOS]
Say 'waterfalls' and 'New York' and just about everyone thinks of Niagara Falls. But don't forget about the many waterfalls in the Adirondack Mountains. Here are 5 of the most majestic.
OK Slip Falls at 250 feet tall are among the tallest in New York. And they require a bit of a hike to take in the sights. It's a 3 mile walk off of Route 28 to find them.
The Au Sable River runs 96 miles though the Adirondack Park including this portion along the Wilmington Notch, a gorge formed by a fault zone - yes an earthquake region in Upstate New York.
Adirondack.net calls Roaring Brook Falls, off of Route 73, one of the safest “natural playgrounds” that can be found, so let the kids enjoy this natural beauty - with supervision, of course.
Rainbow Falls can be seen along Route 9 on the Clinton/Essex County border or as part of one of the region's most popular tourist spots, AuSable Chasm.
Bonus - These falls, located just out of the official Adirondack Park boundary south of Boonville, are located in a state park located on Route 46 and include a 50-foot drop of Lansing Kill.
