Griffin Gorge and Waterfall
View of a spectacular gorge and small waterfall on the East Branch of the Sacandaga River.
A breathtaking geological formation and a surprising find on the Sacandaga. There is a nice view from the bridge and an easy to moderate trail leading downstream along the ridge for a closer view of the cascading waterfall and swimming hole. Getting down to the water's edge though is very steep in places.
The short dirt road to the bridge and parking beyond is off Route 8, accessed between Speculator and Wells from the Adirondack Trail, Rt 30, on what is called Teachout Road.
|Closest Byway:||Adirondack Trail|
|Distance from Byway:||near|
|Closest Route #:||State Rt. 30 and State Rt. 8|
The view and setting is well worth the drive up Rt 8 and plan to walk a short ways on the trail for the full effect. A nice spot for a picnic lunch.
|Indoors or Outdoors:||outdoor|
|How to Find:|
turn onto Teachout Rd and go less than 1/4 mile, across the bridge there is room to park
