Hanna Chute was a waterfall located about 500 m upstream of Muskoka Falls. It was converted into a hydroelectric generating station in 1926 and is now operated by Ontario Power Generation. Even though the waterfall is now gone, you can still see the overflow blast over the spillway during high flows. By no means worth a trip of it's own. It is visible in the distance from the parking area near the much more interesting Muskoka Falls, located on the other side of the road.
Please treat our outdoors and other visitors with respect. Many waterfalls have been closed to the public because of bad behaviour. Also, note that waterfalls are on the traditional lands of Canada's Indigenous Peoples.
