(What do these stats mean?)

Indian Falls can dry up to a trickle during summer months. I've been here a few times, and each time I visit, I'm disappointed by the low flows. At other times of the year however, when the creek has a decent flow, this is easily one of the prettiest waterfalls in the province. A classic plunge waterfall, with a wide "amphitheatre" style gorge and a vertical drop of about 14-15 m. A plaque at the parking lot explains that the upper limestone strata are part of the Manitoulin Formation. The walk from the parking lot is about 10 minutes, and though somewhat demanding, isn't altogether that bad.   (updated June 20, 2014).
