Shelving Rock Falls, a 75-foot cascade, is located along Shelving Rock Brook in the Lake George Wild Forest of the Adirondacks in New York.
Shelving Rock Falls is one of the more popular natural attractions in the region because of proximity to Lake George and the network of trails up to Shelving Rock Mountain. A short .3 mile trail along the south bank of Shelving Rock Brook connects Shelving Rock Road and the top of Shelving Rock Falls where the remains of a power house and dam exist.
