Near Lake George, Shelving Rock Falls, on Shelving Rock Brook, has become a popular waterfall to visit by people of all ages. Access to this 70ft waterfall is relatively easy with a short, level walk which becomes a brief but steep, downhill scramble. Along the first part of the walk, there is a deep gorge that runs alongside the trail that contains several tiny cascades.
There is also a trail system in place, which is indicated on the map, for those who would like to explore the area. On the opposite of the brook, there a small area to have a picnic near the waterfall.
