About this Waterfall

Ranney Falls is a wide plunge waterfall found just south of Campbellford. Access is from the Ferris Provincial Park. When I was a student we camped here one time and were able to jump off the waterfall. I'm not sure if you can still do this, and recall seeing photos showing protective fences. The falls spans the entire width of the Trent River, perhaps 50-60 m. The crest forms a downstream pointing V-shape. The falls is perhaps 4 m high.

The view of the river valley from the Park is impressive. A new high suspension footbridge crosses the Ranney gorge just downstream from the falls. Upstream at Trent Drive there is a low, stony spillway beneath a dam. This is nothing of interest, but may have good whitewater in spring (?).
