Hardy Lake Falls is very small, narrow falls located along a stream that drains Hardy Lake to Lake Muskoka. You can see the trough pattern created by tilted bedrock.

The total elevation drop between these two lakes is 10 m, so there may be a few rapids or tiny falls along the creek. I have not found this falls in person. When we visited, we took the wrong trail and ran out of time. The hike along the lakeshore in Hardy Lake Provincial Park is highly recommended.
