(What do these stats mean?)

One of the biggest waterfalls in Ontario. If you are traveling in the Thunder Bay area, do not miss this one. It is easily accessible and safe viewing platforms have been constructed. The falls are about 40 m high, and flows are typically fairly consistent. It has it's own Wikipedia Page at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kakabeka_Falls I haven't visited yet, but this is definitely one of the biggest gaps in my own waterfall travels. We took some flack from readers that wrote in about us not including this in the first version of our book.   (updated June 20, 2014).
