Rainbow Falls Reservoir is 666-acres and has nearly 11 miles of shoreline. Geographically, this is a long and narrow stretch of water and is well-sheltered against all but the heaviest winds. This is a very peaceful stretch of water, and the channel leading to the powerhouse is quite scenic.
Nearby hiking trails include the Catamount Mountain Lodge Trail, Higley Flow State Park, and Rainbow Falls. ATV's can also access the County's extensive trail network at the St. Lawrence County Multi-Use Trailhead in South Colton.
