(What do these stats mean?)

This is a small waterfall that has been partly altered by an concrete dam across its top. One wonders how pretty this would have been before construction of the dam (?). But still, it's a pleasant spot. The waterfall is 2 to 3 m in height, and about 7 to 8 m wide. The bedrock here is an interesting jet black metamorphic rock.. Similar rock is exposed at Price Rapids located immediately west of the junction of Hwy 37 and Hwy 7. There is a small parking area on Flinton Rd for the Flinton Conservation Authority. You can quite easily walk in to see the top of the falls. But getting to the base of the falls requires a more challenging ramble through the woods and down some rocky slopes. Not too difficult or dangerous, but it is probably buggy in summer.  (updated June 20, 2014).
