Discover Allen Falls

Short hike to a scenic 35-foot waterfall and downstream swimming hole on High Falls Creek (West Branch St. Regis River).
0.4 miles, Round Trip
Easy, Moderate
Dirt/Forest Floor, Rocks/Ledge


From the mowed area, follow a well-worn path across a small stream and through an area of blown down trees. On the left, there is a side trail that follows a dry creek bed leading to a view of the upper falls. Continue straight to reach a different view of the waterfall and another steeper path to the full view of the waterfall and a swimming hole.

Please take care on the slippery rocks near the falls.
