(What do these stats mean?)

Hoggs Falls is a lesser-known neighbour of Eugenia Falls. It is much smaller, undeveloped, beautiful, yet still remarkably easy to access. The waterfall is classified as a plunge waterfall, but unlike most plunge falls, there is no obvious underlying weaker formation below. The face of this waterfall consists of similar rock from top to bottom and you don't see large blocks of dolostone littering the base of the falls like at so many other falls along the Niagara Escarpment. Watch for some yellow metal gates on the left. There are two sets of gates, about 100-200 m apart. There is very limited parking here (maybe 2 cars at each gate), and there are few good places to park on the road. Follow the path from the yellow gates for just a few minute to the falls.  (updated June 20, 2014).
