Christine Falls is formed on the Sacandaga River in Wells as it runs parallel to NY Rte 8. This easily accessible location holds a small, gorge-like area where the falls are formed.
To get there: From north of Wells (junction of Routes 30 & 8 East), drive northwest on Route 30 for ~6.3 miles and turn right onto a short dirt area. Park off to the side of the road. Follow a path down from the end of the road that quickly leads to the falls.
