About Fourth Chute
One of the most interesting waterfall sites in Eastern Ontario. The river narrows on the upstream side of the road and first falls over a small ridge no more than about a 1 or 2 m high. On the downstream side, the Bonnechere River flows into the main falls, which is a very blocky-looking set of plunge falls. But what is most interesting is that the blockiness is due to large vertical and straight joints (cracks) within the rock. <BR><BR> As of 2021, construction was starting at a property to the south of the falls. I have confirmed that the municipality will still have ownership of a 20 m wide strip of land along the south side of the river. This will permit access to the falls. Parking is another story! You may be able to park at the Bonnechere Caves on the north side of the river... but please don't do this while the caves are open for business. Better still, please DO this while the caves are open, but pay the admission fee to visit the caves too.
