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

A very little waterfall that only flows during spring melt. Don't go out of your way to find this one, as you may be disappointed unless you hit at the right time. The falls can be viewed from the road, although vegetation would obscure the view during summer. Flows are likely low to non-existent at that time anyways.

A weak path leads into the forest to the falls, which are maybe 50-60 m from the road. While I haven't seen any signs along the road, the falls may be on private property.

There are probably a dozen little falls like this along the Ausable River valley. For example, there are at least two along the loop trail that leads past Mystery Falls and then back up the long hill to the parking lot. These are all smaller than Fossil Rd Falls, and really not exciting at all.

This waterfall is coded yellow because it may be on private property. I have not seen any signs and have never been contacted about it. Visiting may be tolerated, but as always, please be respectful and treat the lands like they were your own. If you are a local and have information about this site, please let me know.

Waterfalls of Ontario Project

This project has been online since 1999, in print since 2003, and on social since 2011. (See archives: 2003, 2012, 2018). It was the first to inventory and map Ontario's waterfalls for recreational purposes. With your continued help, it grows. Learn more...
