Take-out: From Elizabethtown, NY, head south on NY-9 for 8.2 miles to the turnout at Split Rock Falls, just before the road crosses the river. Exit the river immediately below the bridge. You DO NOT want to bumble off of Split Rock Falls.

Put-in: Continue south on NY-9 for 2.1 miles to the junction with NY-73, go right. Follow this for 1.3 miles (crossing the South Fork of the Boquet) to a turn-out on the left just before the bridge over the North Fork of the Boquet. We put-in at the lip of the 90 Degree Falls just downstream of the bridge.
