(What do these stats mean?)

This waterfall is no where near as spectacular as Healey Falls, which is found upstream. And with water being diverted to a powerhouse, it can dry up to a boring trickle in later summer. At higher flows (eg. April, May) though this can be an interesting spot to visit. The river blasts under a wide water level control dam before spreading perhaps 100 m or more across a wide stepped limestone plain. Each falls is less than 1 m in height, which makes it difficult to get a good "Waterfall picture". But this is easily accessible via a small parking lot on the east side of County Rd 50, about 5 km north of Campbellford. Lock 14 of the Trent Canal is located here too, so if the falls pittles out in summer, you can at least enjoy the boats and the broad expense of dry bedrock riverbed.   (updated June 20, 2014).
