The dense forest surrounding this little falls disguises the highway just a few feet away. This quick walk takes you into a hemlock woods to discover a small but charming chute falls not far from Lake George. Descending from two points in Hague Brook separated by solid rock, this falls slides effortlessly down the rock face through a narrow trench before rejoining the brook on its way to spill into Lake George. So natural and permanent does this woods appear that you may not guess it’s a second-growth successional forest, the successful return of dense woods to an area that had been clearcut by the lumber industry less than one hundred years ago.
