Harper Falls is on the North Branch of the Grasse River. The hike into this area is almost as beautiful as the falls itself. View the interactive trail map for Harper's Falls Trail on STLCtrails.com/harpersfallstrail Directions: From the intersection to the trail parking is ½ mile on the Donnerville Road which is dirt and gravel and is shared with ATV users, so please use caution as there are several blind hills and turns. Starting from Donnerville Road and walking up the river toward Harper Falls offers a relaxing trek, with a couple of hills and small creek crossings. Once at the falls do not only observe them from a distance, take a walk to the top for that "up close feeling". While walking up you may notice the path has stone walls along the edge. These are the remnants of an old sawmill. This mill was made during the time the town of Donnerville was active and running. There is an alternate hike as well for Harper Falls, which is from the opposite end of Donnerville Road, which intersects with County Route 24. The drive in is about 1.75 miles. This hike is about 2 miles to the falls. There is also the remnants of an old cemetery on this end of Donnerville Road.

The land along Tooley Pond Road is the Northern River Flow-Tooley Pond Tract, which is a section of the New York DEC public lands, allowing access to this simply amazing place. A 16-mile section of the South Branch of the Grasse River meanders within the tract. Along this stretch, six major waterfalls exist with a variety of named rapids. The falls include: Rainbow Falls, Bulkhead Falls, Flat Rock Falls, Twin Falls, Sinclair Falls and Basford Falls. They range from the 40 foot drop of Rainbow Falls to the gentle sloped falls at Sinclair Falls, a perfect place to have lunch. The South Branch of the Grasse has excellent kayaking and canoeing with easy carries around the falls, if you do not desire to take the express route. There is good fishing in the area, but check for special regulations on the South Branch of the Grasse River. There is also an enjoyable hike up Tooley Pond Mountain at the southern end of the road. Little exploration of the area had taken place until the 1860s when iron was discovered in the region. In 1866 the town of Clarksboro was established near Twin Falls on the shore of the Grasse River. An iron furnace and water-run sawmill were built to support the town. The foundation of the sawmill can still be seen at the top of Twin Falls.
