About Belfountain Falls

The waterfall at Belfountain Conservation Area is a pleasant surprise. This is a great family outing as it's a well developed park and the walk to the falls is short. There are trails on the far side that you can use to extend the visit. I didn't find it until many years after I started this inventory. Being close to Toronto, it can get quite busy on weekends. The upper portion of the falls has been increased in height by a dam that holds back a recreational pond. In 2021, the park was closed (or partially closed). It is my understanding that they are planning to remove the dam. While this will result in a lower falls (and a smaller pond), it will be all-natural. A suspension style footbridge crosses the river gorge immediately downstream of the falls making for a great visiting experience. There are reportely smaller cascades a little downstream, likely just beyond where most day-use visitors would venture. Let me know if you find them.
