Quarry Pool Falls is a 3- to 4-foot waterfall that goes over a small dam and through a gorge before the river goes into Quarry Pool, a well-known fishing spot.
Directions: From Lake Placid, drive northeast on Route 86 for 3.5 miles. Turn left into a pull-off when you see a sign for Quarry Pool. Then, follow the trail 0.05 miles to the river, then upstream for another 0.05 miles until you see the falls.
