WINDING (aka PA'S) FALLS, BOG RIVER xc skiing




Mar 16, 2015 - PA'S (aka WINDING) FALLS. Bog River Ski Trail. 


Jan 6, 2013 - PA'S FALLS ON THE BOG RIVER. 20" - much powder over a wettish base. Bridge over Round Lake Stream. S of the bridge an old road passes the sites of the "Bog River Hilton" & other camps that the state removed soon after purchasing the land eventually reaching a gate at the edge of state land - some blowdown. NW of the bridge an old road (now also canoe carry for those doing the Whitney Loop) goes up over a hill for 2 miles before reaching the bridge over the Bog River. Crossed the bridge & skied downstream a bit to the spectacular falls - lots of water dropping over 20' between icy rock walls. 6+ hours. 


Dec 30, 2007 - PA'S & SPLIT ROCK FALLS, BOG RIVER on unmarked trail from Rt.30 (0.2 miles S of Rt.421). 20" in the Tupper Lake area - bit of an icy crust made for more challenging skiing. 1.5 miles on rolling hilly terrain, soon reach Bog River then follow Round Lake Outlet. A R on dirt road goes over a good bridge, bear R long uphill then drop to cross bridge over the Bog River - a R turn leads to best spot to enjoy noisy Pa's Falls which drops 30'. From bridge continued on old logging road, bearing L then turning L (following orange ribbons) & reach 6' Split Rock Falls in 10 mins. The river upstream is calm - pretty spot. The camps we saw last year have already been removed - area was recently purchased by the state. Lots of deer tracks. Intermediate. 7.5 miles, 5 hrs.
