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. 

From Lake Placid, drive southwest on Route 73 and turn left on Station Road. Continue for 0.8-miles. Turn right onto Old Military Road and then immediately turn left onto Averyville Road. After 11 miles you'll turn left into the parking area for the Northville-Placid Trail.
