Waterfall videoTechnically unnamed, these falls are located on the Plumb Brook in the town of Russell.  The access road is is on CR 17, ½ mile from the junction of CR 17 and CR 24.  The drive down the access road is less than a tenth of a mile and there is a small parking area.  Head downstream and within a minute or so, you are at the falls.

The name of this waterfall is now official, having been added to the GNIS data base on November 9, 2017.

 Plumb Brook shouldn't be confused with the Plum Brook, also in St. Lawrence County.  That waterway is in the Potsdam area and feeds the Raquette River in the town of Norfolk.  We know of no waterfall on that brook.

The Plumb Brook flows into the Grasse River which flows to the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg, New York.
