About Burleigh Falls
I love Burleigh Falls. It's not much of a waterfall - there are a few chutes and very low cascades. But there is lots of opportunity to explore. If you aren't afaid of getting your feet wet, during low flow in late summer you can safely wade across the wide, shallow river to some small rocky islands adjacent to the falls. Water from Lower Buckhorn Lake drains to Stony Lake through a short river about 100 meters in width. Flowing over a broad expanse of bedrock, the river eventually breaks into several different small falls and chutes that wind around a half dozen islands at the lower reaches of the river. <BR><BR>In 2020 the falls were closed (!) due to awful visitor behavour. Drinking, littering, defecating on neighbours' lawns... yup. etc. This wasn't the only waterfall where increased use and mis-use caused problems, but it really hurt. Let's hope that people are more respectful going forward.
