Very difficult to see trail entrance. Had to follow ribbon trail markers. We lost the trail and pretty soon had to choose between water up to the thigh or dense tree travel. We never found the trail. Getting to the river, where there is supposed to be a bridge, there was none. A group of Kayakers ferried us across. We hoped to find the trail on the other side. It started pretty open but soon enough we were bushwhacking on a 8 km loop of no return. So, we headed back, was ferried across once more but this time hugged the water all the way back to the main trail. It was much faster on the way back.

Time to head back. We sure didn't want to but...

Because of all the beavers, many parts of the trail was under water.

A very large beaver dam. We had to cross o this 100 yard dam to continue on our journey.

A campsite marker but no camp site. It looked as if it was under water due to beaver dams.

The same marker for the campsite but now on higher ground. This is where we stayed.

High Falls Loop Trail
Location: 44.074329, -74.910192
This trail continues up towards Cranberry lake and Wanakena. But, it was deviated from the trail from the map to overpass THE PLAINS which is probably covered in water. There is a nice climb here over a hill up a ways.

This is the turn off. You can continue up to Wanakena or stay on the lean-to campsite by the lake. We headed back to Wanakena.
