Nearest Intersection: High Falls Rd and Belfort Rd
Directions: From the intersection of Hwy 126 and Hwy 812 in Croghan, take Hwy 812 north for .7 miles. (At .4 miles is Croghan Island Falls) Turn Right onto Belfort Rd and drive for .6 miles. Turn Left onto High Falls Rd and drive 1.3 miles. Turn left and drive .2 miles. At this point turn left again and follow the dirt road to it’s end which is another .3 miles. The parking area is at the end and there was also a porta potty there.
Comments/Notes: From the parking area walk up the gravel road by the penstock. Within a few hundred yards look for a path off to the left that goes under the penstock and follow it to the base of the dam and falls.
