Blue Ridge Falls – North Hudson

Blue Ridge Falls

Blue Ridge Falls is a roadside gem with excellent views

Blue Ridge Falls is a 20ft fall that is made up of a number of small drops and ledges. Formed on The Branch, which runs alongside Blue Ridge Road for a short distance, it is visible from the roadside at a pull-off with ample parking.

The Branch is fed partly by Elk Lake, a popular destination where lodging is available at the Elk Lake Lodge, just a short distance from the falls. Another nearby hiking destination is Tahawas, the Upper Tract and the newly opened Boreas Ponds area. Tahawas and the Upper Tract is an entry point into the High Peaks for hikers and is the site of a former mining town. For more information on the Elk Lake Lodge, click here.

To get there: Blue Ridge Falls from the Northway, take exit 29 and turn West onto Blue Ridge Road. Drive approximately 2.4 miles. The falls will be on your left just after Blue Ridge Campground which is on the right.

Help Keep Your Trails Open!We are a community of Waterfallers, and you make a difference.

Have a small bag on hand. It is possible, due to the pandemic, that the trail you are going to visit will contain litter.

What better way to help our fellow Waterfallers than limit the amount of litter seen by the next Waterfallers to hike on the path!?
