Rock climbers come to Little Falls from all over the state and, indeed, the world, thanks in large part to the unique geology of Moss Island. The best viewing site is a short, pleasant stroll along the Canal to Lock 17 (a 5-10 minute walk from Canal Place). Picnic tables, benches, and a composting toilet are available. Parking is limited.
Climbers need to check in with City Hall to sign a release and pay a nominal day-use fee. Click here for photos of the climbing site and full information.
