About Buttermilk Falls on Kennisis

Even though it has been partially modified by a concrete sluiceway, this is an interesting site to explorel. The falls is located along a short river that drains Halls Lake towards Boshkung Lake, 18 m below. The upper portion of the channel has been diverted into the sluiceway, about 3 to 4 metres wide. The concrete base of the channel allows the water to really pick up speed. When the water leaves the sluiceway, it blasts out on to the bedrock channel below, continuing its descent at about a 30 degree angle. The water finds its way downstream by bumping and sliding over the jagged gneiss bedrock. At higher flow the spray can be pretty good!
