Christine Falls – Wells, Hamilton

Christine Falls

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.

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!?
