About Cataraqui Falls
A small to moderate-sized cascade of limited interest, this waterfall is located just minutes north of Hwy 401, just outside of Kingston. The falls increases in width as it tumbles over well worn igneous rock at an angle of about 30-40 degrees. The total fall is estimated at about 8 m in height, and can range from a mere trickle in summer to a raging torrent in spring. The falls are just east of Locks 46 to 49 on the Rideau Canal. Park in the lot just west of the Canal.
