Auger Falls Professional Review and Guide

"The powerful falls on the West Branch of the Sacandaga River are truly a sight to see. Channeled into a narrow flume, the river plunges 40 feet in a torrent of foamy waters. As a short-distance loop, this is an excellent introductory hike for children, but take caution near the falls because the cliffs are steep and potentially slippery.

On the trail, walk along the rolling terrain a little more than 0.3 mile through mixed hardwoods. Ahead, you will begin to hear the roar of the falls, and it is likely that you will abandon the trail to explore the numerous paths that diverge from the main trail to find the best vantage point. Many of the paths that offer views and photo ops of the torrential falls are worn and crumbling, so watch your step."
