(What do these stats mean?)

The upper portion of White's Falls has been modified by a dam to maintain water levels in Six Mile Lake. As such, the flow through the falls is seasonally variable. . It is located right off Muskoka Rd 34, just a few minutes from Hwy 400. The falls are located along the main road to the Big Chute Marine Railway. White's Falls is named after Joseph Arthur White Sr who settled in the area in the mid-19th century. This site can be very busy in summer, where the lower flows permit swimmers to play around in the cascades. Be careful! The rocks are slippery!  (updated 41810).
