(What do these stats mean?)

High Falls is a beautiful waterfall located far from human development. It takes about 2 hours to hike to the site, and thus even with the hordes of visitors to the nearby Petroglyphs Provincial Park, only a few make the long trip to the waterfalls. The falls are not actually in the park, but are in the Peterborough Game Reserve. The site is quite unspoiled and natural. The trail to the falls from the Provincial Park visitor's centre is beautiful, passing by Minnow Lake and a variety of terrestrial and aquatic habitats. This park will occupy you for the better part of a day. There may be a hiking trail in from the road, but I haven't tried it yet. Have you?  (updated June 20, 2014).
