Lampson Falls – DeGrasse, New York. Off County Rte. 27. (MEET there)

The Lampson Falls trail is ¾ of a mile to the falls. (Optionally) It then proceeds another 1-1/2 miles north along the Grass River. The view at the falls is always wonderful. It often attracts many people to see. The trail to the falls is an old road and is fairly level. To get down to the falls requires going down an incline, and up another incline to complete. It may require a bit of balance assistance and help for some individuals.

A map of the falls is attached.

Directions to the Lampson Falls:

  • Rte. 68 to Canton,
  • Take a right onto County Rte. 27 (Park St.),
  • Continue Rte. 27 past the four-way stop,
  • Continue Rte. 27 bearing left on hill,
  • Continue Rte. 27 approx. 16 miles,
  • Lampson Falls will be on the right. Usually has many cars located at parking lot.

PLEASE Contact Tom Lawrence,, 315-393-3503 to attend and for more information.

If anyone wants to meet and leave together as a group, contact me. I will be leaving at 9:00 AM.
