This gorgeous waterfall is found upstream of the much larger, far more popular Ragged Falls. It is usually visited only by paddling about 3 km from the big falls. The driving directions lead to the parking lot for Ragged Falls, for convenience. There is a campsite above the falls and another below. But 3 km isn't too far, making it quite possible to visit this waterfall on an afternoon paddle.

Some people refer to this site as Angle Falls. The form of this falls is rather unique. It has elements of a step falls, but the layered metamoprhic rock is inclined upstream. Had the rock layers been tilted any other way, this would have formed a trough form falls. (High Falls in Muskoka actually has this same configuration).

It is my understanding that a land route to this falls exists, but I haven't yet figured it out. What I do know is that you can't follow Timbertrail Lane from Hwy 60; it becomes private property long before the falls.
