Waterfall Inventory for Northwestern Ontario Region

About Northwestern Ontario Region
This enormous region covers about half of the province and is largely inaccessible by road. But don't be discouraged, as there are a number of big, impressive waterfalls that are relatively easy to access. Try a scenic tour of the many scenic falls along Hwy 17 as it circles the north shore of Lake Superior.

The highlight is Kakabeka Falls, right off Hwy 11 west of Thunder Bay. Known as "Niagara of the North"… a bit of a stretch, but not much.

Warning: Please realize that many waterfalls in this list are inaccessible by car. And be sure to keep a full tank of gas - the distances between gas stations can be large.
