This tiny falls with the funny name is located beside a portage along the Head River. The river constricts through a very narrow channel, passing over bedrock but also some large separated blocks. The total fall is only about 1 m.

The falls are about 1.5 km upstream from Head Lake, and about 6 km from a canoe put-in at the south end of Head Lake. The driving coordinates point to the parking lot for paddlers.
