Our Responsibility
Waterfalls get closed when people are injured or ruin lands.

Please don't trespass, don't litter, and stay on the trail.

This small, but attractive falls is reserved for those that visit by paddling. There is no land access that I know of. It is only about 2 m high and maybe 5-6 m wide. But the fall is vertical, which is quite rare for waterfalls in the Canadian Shield area. One part barrier cascade and another part plunge-type falls.

Flow at this waterfall is generally fairly reliable, though I have seen photos of it with much reduced flows later in the warmer season. Two much smaller cascades are located upstream on the river, prior to reaching Ernest Lake.

I've coded this waterfall as blue, but this could be pushing it. Distance from the Raven Lake Parking Area on Hwy 35 is about 8km, which is probably too much for most people to accomplish in a day (and return). The distance from Lion's Camp Dorset is a little over 5 km, but I'm not sure if your can put in at this spot.

If you have canoed to this spot and can help to inform others, please let me know. Let's improve this waterfall entry!
