Our Responsibility
Waterfalls get closed when people are injured or ruin lands.

Please don't trespass, don't litter, and stay on the trail.
Warning: Waterfalls are dangerous - You aren't permitted to use this site unless you read, understand and accept the Website Disclaimer

This little falls has been partially modified by a hydroelectric development. The hydro building diverts most of the Gull River's water flow during lower flow periods. In fact, the falls can be completely dry by late summer. A concrete log sluice still runs over part of the blocked waterfall.

The untouched portion of the falls is on the far side of the dam. It is an irregular cascade about 2 to 3 meters in height. Visitors can use a walkway across the top of the dam to reach a short trail on the far side. Note: This site was closed down in 2023 for dam rehabilitation. I assume and hope that it is reopened and still allows access.

This waterfall is featured in the 'Waterfalls of Ontario' book. Please pick up a copy to learn more. This helps to support this project. NOTE: There are no safety railings at this waterfall. Anyone that chooses to visit does so at their own risk.
