Landmark: Registration Koisk
Nearest Intersection: Hwy 8 and Old Rte 8a
Directions: From the intersection of Hwy 8 and Hwy 30 and Elm Lake Rd in Speculator, take Hwy 30 southeast for 8 miles. From the lower parking area, walk back down towards the highway and take the trail to your left. You will come to a sign in koist. The trail is easy to follow.

Comments, Notes: There is another section of waterfalls shown on google imagery both above the location of this area which is about 330 ft further up. And below which is about .1 miles further down. I may have to go back to confirm if I did see the section above. In the photos I had grouped them as Upper, Middle and Lower. Middle being Agers Falls.
