Easily accessible, easy to love: that's Shoebox Falls.

Getting there

From exit 28 in Schroon Lake follow I-87 north for two exits to exit 30. From here take a left and follow Route 9 toward Elizabethtown and shortly a left onto Route 73 and head toward Keene. Continue for 1.3 miles to the bridge over the Boquet River, the parking in just over the bridge on the right. 


Shoebox Falls is on the north side of Route 73 after it passes under the bridge. Walk back over the bridge and continue for a few hundred feet to a path leading to the top of the falls. The falls are bit tough to see from here but does offer a somewhat popular swim hole. To best see the falls continue a bit further past the tree line where the falls can be seen from the roadside. Please stay on the backside of the guardrail for safety from traffic.
