A fragrant balsam forest, an easy walk over soft needles, and a vigorous scramble for stunning waterfall views sum up this short hike. Here on the banks of the Salmon River, you’re in for a treat: a conifer-rich forest that smells like the December holidays and a path with a soft bed of needles that rejuvenates your feet. Silent except for birdsong and the sound of fresh water pouring over rocks, this enchanting forest is exactly the kind of place you came to the North Country to see. It’s a short but satisfying walk to High Falls, one of several cascades so named in New York and probably the shortest of the “high.”
