About Decew Falls
This is widely-regarded as one of the prettiest waterfalls in southern Ontario. Forming a perfect curtain and fed by a regulated waterway, the waterfall is typically reliable through most of the year. The restored mill buildings beside the crest add to the scene. This is Morningstar Mills, which is often open for tours. My favourite thing was looking down the deep turbine shaft. <BR><BR>Unfortunately, the area around the top of the falls is fenced off for obvious safety reasons. Getting the best pictures of this falls means getting into the gorge. This is not impossible, but challenging. In 2020-2021 due to excessive Covid-driven crowds, access to the gorge was being restricted. Thus, I have removed tips about visiting for now. Hopefully this will be eased in the coming months to a year. Shots of the falls from above are still worthwhile; you will just be limited in your angle. Note that parking can get very busy here on warm weekends.
