(What do these stats mean?)

One of the most rugged and unspoiled waterfalls within easy road access. This tall cascade has eroded a deep gorge into the hard Canadian Shield. The bedrock has a more jagged appearance than smooth. It is dangerous to explore the base of the waterfall, as the gorge walls are near vertical into the river. Fortunately, ou can explore the area above the waterfall crest by following a trail through the woods on the northwest side of the river. There's even a smaller upper falls that you can't see from the road.   (updated June 20, 2014).
