(What do these stats mean?)

This is a low, long, powerful waterfall, pronounced "K-ni-flee Falls". Like most falls of this shape, it isn't very photogenic, but is fairly interesting to visit. The Magnetawan River flows north out of Ahmic Lake (located just to the north of the falls) tumbles over (more correctly, through) the falls and then continues east to its outlet at Georgian Bay, about 75 km to the west. The total fall here is probably less than 7 or 8 m, and is spread over a long stretch of close to 100 m of bubbling, boiling waters. The river starts to fall at a very low dam under an old abandoned concete bridge over the river. It then splits into two long, narrow, bedrock lined channels, each separated by a long, low rock ridge visible in the photograph. The two channels combine into one about 10 m before the river flows under Hwy 124. After a few small rapids downstream of the bridge, the river calms down into flatwater.   (updated June 20, 2014).
