The falls are a series of short and wide cascades on the Raquette River totaling more than 40 feet. An interesting elevation phenomenon occurs making the river appear to be elevated above the surrounding bedrock.
Very short walk, very scenic, care should be take during wet weather because of wet rocks. Buttermilk Falls is a treat to visit any time of the year and almost every visitor to the area should make the Falls one of their destinations. The entrance to the falls is on the right side of the North Point Road, 2.1 miles from the intersection with Rte. 28N/30. A sign by a small parking area marks the entrance. This spot, with tables and fireplaces is an excellent choice of a site for a picnic. A short walk to the falls is fine for all ages. There is a 2.5 mile canoe carry around the falls. Bring your camera as this is an excellent photo opportunity.
