Wanika Falls is located on the Chubb River near Lake Placid and features a series of cascades.
The falls can be reached via the Northville-Placid Trail, and requires a 7-mile one-way hike.
To get to the Northville-Placid trailhead from the Olympic Ski Jumping Complex, drive a short time on NY 73 before staying left onto Old Military Road. Continue until you see a left turn toward Averyville Road (CR 23).
Drive just over a mile on Averyville Road until you see a parking area and trailhead on your left just before crossing over the Chubb River.
