The 18 foot Agers Falls is located on the Moose River in Lewis County, just east of the small hamlet of Lyons Falls.  The waterfalls is named after Joel W. Ager, who built a paper mill at this location in the 1840s. There also was a sawmill that was built in this area. The area is now known as the Agers Falls Recreational & Historical Area. It features a picnic area, boat launch and the one mile Moose River Trail. It is a scenic spot along the Moose River.

This waterfall is located just outside the blue line of Adirondack Park. There is a power plant and dam just above the falls with signs warning visitors to evacuate the area if siren sounds and beware of fast rising water. The Moose River Trail is a pleasant walk along the river that starts at a parking area west of the Agers Falls Recreational & Historical Area along Lyonsdale Road and ends at the main parking area at the falls. The trail is marked and even if it wasn't, it's pretty easy to follow the trail for the most part.
