I have not yet visited this waterfall, and don't have a photo to share. If you can contribute one, it would improve this project. The falls are found on a small stream that drains Beaver Lake, passes under the road, and then immediately discharges to the Wahnapitae River.

The waterfall appears to be about 2 to 3 m high and fairly steep, with a good show during spring melt. The watershed feeding the stream is fairly small, and I would expect that flows decrease dramatically during summer. The stream drops 30 m in a little over 200 m; might there be another small cascade just a bit further upstream?

This is another one of the small falls that was catalogued by Gary LeClair. In the mid- to late-2010s, Gary maintained a Facebook page called 'Waterfall's of Northern Ontario, by Gary LeClair'. He combed the backroads around the greater Sudbury area to photograph well-known and little-known waterfalls.

Gary provided great directions and geographic coordinates for all of the sites that he visited. In a few cases I've adjusted the coordinates were off just a bit; I may have had access to better mapping than was available at the time. Either set of coordinaes are good enough.

The falls are located 1 km north of the bridge over the Wahnapitae River. The access road follows the shore of the river, beyond which a large hill rises 80 m. Watch for the point where the creek flows under the road. I believe that the falls are no more than about 30 m upstream in the woods. If you visit, please let me know. If you can see the Wahnapitae River, the creek that flows down Overhead Falls drains to the river, on the far side, just one hundred metres to the north.

Waterfalls of Ontario Project

This project has been online since 1999, in print since 2003, and on social since 2011. (See archives: 2003, 2012, 2018). It was the first to inventory and map Ontario's waterfalls for recreational purposes. With your continued help, it grows. Learn more...
