Nearest Intersection: Rte 3 Coreys Rd and Raquette Falls Trail Rd
Directions: From the intersection of Hwy and Hwy 3 in Saranac Lake, Take Hwy 3 southeast for 2.4 miles. Bear right onto Coreys Rd and drive .2 miles. Turn right onto Coreys Rd and continue 2.6 miles to Raquette Falls Parking area.
Comments/Notes: I have included the entire hike down to where the put in and take out is at the south end of the trail. So therefore I have included the falls that I had seen there. I plan to return to this location again.
