(What do these stats mean?)

The two waterfalls at Rosseau Falls can provide both good exploring and photography. The river descends about 30 m on its rocky course towards Lake Rosseau. The upper falls is located just downstream of the Hwy 141 bridge. I seem to remember that there was a small parking area, perhaps just a wide shoulder on the highway. If it's a private driveway, do not park there. Either way, use caution, because the road can be busy. At high flow the waterfall is completely swamped by rushing white water. At low flow, there is lots of exposed rock. The lower falls is in a much quieter setting, below a bridge on Rosseau Lake Rd 3. Similar in appearance to the upper falls, as a long, low gradient rocky cascade. From the bridge you can see the lake in the distance. There are some very fancy cottages in the area - please do not trespass.  (updated June 20, 2014).
