Twin Falls and Stewarts Rapids
This location has two waterfalls, one of which is roadside, and the other is a 5-10 min. hike. There is a very small parking shoulder for the roadside fall and then a short path right to the head of it. Just past the falls there is a small parking area, with a beach down to the pond, but this is marked private property. So park on the side of the road, just above the falls. It looks like there was a bridge to get to the trail, but it is not there anymore. You can just kind of find your own way across the stream. This stream leads to a small waterfall with a pool below it, you can swim here, but it’s a little marshy.
Or right across this stream is a trail that will lead to the large waterfall. It’s a huge and very wide cascade falls about 50 ft. high. Both falls empty into a pond which is great for swimming in. Between the two falls there are a few small beaches with one having really interesting rocks that seem like melted glass and rock.
The first website says the falls are on private property, but on Google maps it shows up as state land. The second website says this land is owned by the DEC and open to the public. That doesn’t necessarily mean you’re allowed to swim here though…
