   About this Waterfall

Waterfall Region: Eastern    County: Hastings    Near: Bowen Corner

Watercourse: York River   Latitude, Longitude: 45.0748, -77.7344

(What do these stats mean?)

A neat waterfall located where the river constricts and flows through a V-shaped notch in the bedrock. The falls is about 3 to 5 m high, although the total drop along this stretch of the river is probably 10 m. There are no fences, and the rocks around the falls can be very slippery - be careful, but visit! This is found at the end of an old country/wooded lane/path along the west side of the river. Watch for the dirt road leading north into the woods, just before the York River. There used to be a paved road part way in, but I couldn't see it using Google Street View in 2011. In the late 1990s I could drive my old Honda Civic most of the way to the falls, but don't know if the road is still this good. Watch for "Rockhounds" looking for minerals along this path.  (updated June 20, 2014).
