Bog River Falls

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Tupper Lake in Franklin County

Bog River Falls are part of a stream beginning in Bog Lake, continuing through Lows Lake, to Bog River Flow and then over the falls into Tupper Lake.

Visitors are on the site of much history and scenic wonder. Logging was already well established along the upper reaches of the Bog River by the time of the Civil War. Four dams were built between Bog River Falls upstream to Winding River Falls to help control the movement of logs. Bog River Falls are near the west shore of Tupper Lake, on County Road 421 less than a mile from Route 30.
