This waterfall is an interesting example of the ramp form which occurs where a strong resistant caprock formation is absent. This prevents the formation of a "plunge" class waterfall (eg. Balls Falls), because there is no hard rock layer protruding over the softer rocks. This falls hasn't been as developed for visiting. But if you are careful, look around for a way to descend into the gorge. Not straight over the edge - there are some gentler ways down. Photography is way better down here. In the nearby conservation area (off Quarry Rd) there is an interpretive sign that includes a photo by yours truly!
Please treat our outdoors and other visitors with respect. Many waterfalls have been closed to the public because of bad behaviour. Also, note that waterfalls are on the traditional lands of Canada's Indigenous Peoples.
