Take a quick walk to the top of a briskly tumbling slide. This short walk along the St. Regis River gives you a quick glimpse of some nicely forested land in Parishville, culminating in a good look at one of the area’s most popular waterfalls. Its popularity has taken a toll on the surrounding land, however. You will see bottles, cans, and other leave-behinds from the many picnickers who love this spot (though apparently not enough to keep it clean). Your walk begins on a level path zigzagged with mature tree roots, and then drops sharply as you reach the top of the falls.
