About this Waterfall

This is a waterfalling highlight in northeastern Ontario. It's not that the falls is spectacular, but more that there is a lot of watefalling to be had here. In addiotion to the main, upper falls shown here, there is a lower falls which is almost as big, being more spread out than constricted. In the middle, a gorgeous rock rapids section makes for beautiful photos.

The roads to the falls are quite good, but the last narrow road in from the main road goes through thick woods and is a little dicey. I made it with my Kia Soul in June, but if you visit during a wet period you might want to walk in (about 15 mins?). During dry times, a regular car should be fine as long as you go slow and watch for ruts/potholes. A good gravel parking lot at the end can handle a dozen cars or more. Look for the signs to see the trails, and do the full circle to see both falls. The whole walk is about 30 mins if I remember.
