Owner description: A serene and beautiful waterfall located along an unmarked hiking trail in the Lake George system.
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We set out to find the falls from the downtown area....don't give up eventually you will get there. once on dirt road it goes for awhile..you will come to a parking lot but that's not it keep going beyond the lot down the dirt road and you come to another lot on your left, park and hike in. The hike is not bad at all. It's very beautiful once you reach the falls. Keep going a little bit beyond the falls to view the lake from that area.

It was a nice little hike to this area, if i recall a bit of a drive to get to where the hike started, but, it wasn't a hard hike at all.

The trail, river and falls were awesome. An easy hike for novice and out of shape hikers. Only negative is the long drive (some on unpaved roads) to get there

True it is difficult to find - the trick is that after Hogtown Road, and Hogtwon Trailhead and Parking shortly after (about 9.4 miles from NY 149 on Buttermilk Falls Road / later Sly Pond Road / later Shelving Rock Road), you have to curve left and drive another 3 miles on a steep and twisty road. Once you arrive close to the Shelving Rock Falls, the are signs for parking and how you get to the falls (0.4 miles from the lot only). I went there with my family, and even my two year old daughter was able to walk most of the way (no strollers possible though). The falls are very nice. If you continue to walk down the path, you get to Lake George. We saw a lot of folks with bikini, trunks, and flip flops walking up to the fall. Overall a nice experience.
