(What do these stats mean?)

Located in Limehouse Conservation Area, this low cascade is easily accessed from a trail that starts at a small 2-car parking lot at the intersection of the main village road and the CN rail line. On the 5 minute walk to the cascade, you will pass a number of old stone ruins of lime kilns and assorted buildings. A stone arch (the ruins of an old mill race arch) makes for a beautiful frame over the otherwise uninspiring cascade. If you walk further along the trail, you will find some caves.  (updated June 20, 2014).
