About this Waterfall

This is a small cascade found about 100 m south of Hwy 7, just west of Hwy 37. Access from the gravel parking lot for the conservation area on the south side of Hwy 7, and then follow your ears. The river falls over a wide ridge of dark metamorphic bedrock, perhaps 10-15 m wide, but only 2-3 m high. Pleasant, but you will probably only want to see this one if you are driving along Hwy 7. At low summer flows, the waterfall can be disappointment. At high spring flows, I've found that while the whitewater is actually pretty impressive, the rockbed becomes flooded and it's difficult to get pictures with any detail.
