   About this Waterfall
Rating: 2/5  Size: Small Access: Roadside Only Type: Tall Cascade

Waterfall Region: Algoma    County: Algoma    Near: Island Lake

Watercourse: Northland Creek   Latitude, Longitude: 46.7382, -84.1335

(What do these stats mean?)

This is a pretty waterfall situated right on the south side of Hwy 556. The waterfall itself is unfortunately located on private property, and given the good view of the falls from the road, the owner would easily be able to watch you trespass across his/her lands. Otherwise, the waterfall would no doubt receive a higher visitability score. Fortunately, the waterfall is easily viewed and photographed from the roadside. From Hwy 17 turn right on Rd 556 and drive for about 21 km. There are no signs, and no parking areas. If you reach the intersection with Algoma Rd 532, you have driven about 5 km too far.  (updated 41810).
