Cascade Falls is formed on the back side of Cascade Mountain which is situated near Route 73 not far from Lake Placid in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondacks. The falls can be reached by pulling off Route 73 onto a small (and somewhat hidden) access road between the upper and lower sections of Cascade Lake. Looking up at the shoulder of Cascade Mountain, you will see the Falls. Hike in the general direction of the falls, following a dry, rocky streambed. The water from the falls flows mostly under the rocks except maybe in the springtime. The walk is rugged but short and very rewarding.
