(What do these stats mean?)

A small waterfall within the city. The rocks are a deep rusty red in colour, which could make for good photographs, even though the falls is perhaps no more than a metre or two high. I'm not entirely sure how to access it, because it is found behind a row of houses on Chercover Drive. The Trans-Canada Highway is probably closest, but it is a 4-lane highway here with no parking. You may be able to walk in along a trail at the southern end of Biloski Rd. (?). The air photo shows lots of dirt trails in the area. You could probably follow the Hydro right of way south to the river (no motorized vehicles). The river flows about 3 km to the south where it passes by Lakehead University. There appear to be some small rapids and cascades along this stretch. If you are familiar with this area, please let me know!  (updated June 20, 2014).
