About Burks Falls
Unfortunately, there really is no natural waterfall at Burk's Falls. This may not always have been the case, but today, the falls consists of a rather uninspiring boulder rapids and a small dam. This is not to say that the site isn't a nice little pit stop on your way further north. The town's Heritage Walk starts here, and a nice wooden footbridge over the rapids provides a decent spot to get out and get a stretch. But if you're looking for waterfalls, Burk's Falls isn't one of them. I've included it here because I'm betting that many people see this on the map and wonder about it.
