Glenfield Quadrangle

We have only recently been made aware of this location by a contributor.  We are researching it and will post additional information as it becomes available. 

We have had a falls listed as Roaring Brook Upper Falls.  Since this new location is further upstream from that, we have assigned that one the more descriptive name Roaring Brook Falls on Glendale Road.

For the time being, we are calling this Roaring Brook Upper Falls.  Google Maps actually labels "Roaring Brook Falls" at a point in this general area.  However, topo maps show that this stretch is quite level.  It doesn't make sense to us that a waterfall as tall as our picture notes could be located here.  Also, there is no officially named waterfall by that name in Lewis County.  We do not understand where that label came from.

We have tentatively located it on a topo map a bit upstream from the Google Maps location.  Topographical contour lines indicate that it may not be the only falls on this stretch.  All of the property in this region is private.  We are attempting to contact the owners in an effort to gain access and get better pictures.

The only picture we have at this point is below.  It is taken from the crest.  You can see the bottom faintly, in the lower distance.

The Roaring Brook flows into the Black River which meets Lake Ontario just west of Watertown in Dexter, New York.
