About this Waterfall

This is a nice, decent-sized falls that is bigger than it appears in this photo. And even though you can drive to within a two minute walk to the crest, this waterfall is unspoiled and could easily be mistaken for a true wilderness site. The falls is a wide, steep cascade, about 6 to 7 m in height and about 15 m wide at its base. It is surrounded by a round, low gorge cut out of the bedrock. The bedrock is dark, and rough, giving an interesting rugged look to the river.

In order to get to the falls, you will drive through the small, passive Brooks Falls Park. It is rarely busy, but offers picnic tables and outhouse washrooms.
