Round-Trip Distance: Road accesible
Waterfall Height: 5 feet
Description: Monument Falls is an iconic road side destination beside Route 86 along the West Branch of the Ausable River between Lake Placid and Wilmington. There are short unmarked trails just upstream of the falls that you can explore if you wish to see more of the river. Most are intersted in viewing the waterfalls or the oustanding view of Whiteface as it towers over the Ausable River. You can easily combine a stop here with a trip to the flume or numerous other hikes in the area.
