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

There are several small cascades along this short channel that separates Commanda Lake from Restoule Lake. The total elevation drop is 11 m. Unfortunately, most of the shoreline is privately owned and so access is very limited. The river itself is on crown land, and so one could paddle up or down to the falls.

In earlier versions of this site (and the book) this was referred to as Restoule Falls.

It is also believed that one can see this view of the falls by walking in from the road, but only where the river is very close to the road. This is because the road allowance would merge with the crown land of the river. The access point is upstream of the uppermost falls. But please don't wander downstream, and please heed any private property signs.

This site is coded yellow because I do not have confirmation that the falls can be visited without trespassing. This web site does not give you permission to trespass. Are you a neighbour? Can you provide clarification?

Waterfalls of Ontario Project
