Buttermilk Falls is one of the most visited waterfalls in the Adirondacks, mostly because the hike is very short, easy and flat.
The falls, though not terribly high, are a spectacular sight and make a great spot for a picnic.
From Long Lake, head south on Routes 30 and 28N. Take North Point Road to the right (also known as CR 3), for just over 2 miles until you see a sign on the right indicating a parking area.
Once you park, follow an easy trail approximately 350 feet down and you'll see the falls.
