About this Waterfall

This is one of the premier waterfalls in southern Ontario and should be on everyone's list. This is a 27 m plunge and a real beauty. You have to pay to park here, but it's worth it because you will be here for several hours. The site has been (over?) developed in recent years to include a visitor centre and a very large parking area. You should be warned, however, that the falls can dry up completely in late summer so plan accordingly. The main viewing point is from behind a stone wall just 100 m from the parking area.

There is also an historic mill and small pioneer village right beside the falls. To get to the base of the falls, you should make your way to the far side of the river and watch for the trails down to the gorge bottom. The gorge extends north for several hundred metres downstream from the falls and is well worth the effort as there are a number of smaller cascades. Don't forget to walk upstream to the upper falls, which is smaller but just as photogenic.
