About Cordova Falls Upper

The three (or more) waterfalls at Cordova are small, but pretty, and very interesting to explore. The upper falls is the largest and arguably the best. A good view is had from atop the small concrete dam holding back the water level in Cordova Lake. The Crowe River then tumbles down a rocky channel perhaps 150 m long, dropping 10 m along the way in at least 5 distinct smaller drops, each separated by a short pool of calmer water. The bedrock is a jet black metamorphic rock, possibly amphibolite. This gives the rocky river banks an appearance that is unique among southern and central Ontario waterfalls.
