About Cataract Falls on Blind
A long, low set of cascades, this is a picturesque spot that is easily accessed. The main falls are about 200 m upstream from the Hwy 557 bridge. On your way up stream from the road, there are several smaller cascades and boulder gardens that can be left almost high and dry during summer. There is even a broad slide-type waterfall that you have to walk across on your way up the trail. Not to worry, the water was only a few millimetres deep the last time that I visited. The trail follows along the north side of the river, and you can choose to stay up high for a panoramic view, or down low to get close to the river. The main falls are about 3-4 m high. The river comes in from the left, falls over a long roll-shaped exposure of rock, and then makes an abrupt right turn before flowing downstream. Park in the gravel area immediately north of the bridge. There is a sign with information. Land on the south side of the river is private.
