Fairy Ladder Falls

Keene, NY


This 90 foot high staircase cascade is located on Gill Brook, upstream from Artists Falls.

This waterfall, which is the highest (elevation) waterfall in the Adirondacks, is south of Saint Huberts on Route 73. 

Look for signs for the Giant Mountain Wilderness Area, and you'll see the parking lot for the Adirondack Mountain Reserve across the road.

Take the Lake Road from the AMR guard shack until you reach the Gill Brook Trail. Hike 2.3 miles up the trail, then you must bushwhack 0.2 miles to reach the falls. Glimpses of the falls from the marked trail are best caught during times of high water.
