This waterfall is easily accessed from Route 30 south of Speculator.
The falls are slightly downstream from the power generation dam on the Sacandaga River. There are 2 small waterfalls, dropping approximately 20 feet to a wonderful local swimming hole. Take Route 30 south for approximately 2 ½ miles, passing Old Route 30 on your left. Continue on another .3 miles around a short bend in the road and look for the parking area for the falls on the left side of the road. Park and walk down the slope to the waterfalls. Difficulty: Easy
