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

This is a very small rock rapids in a roadside picnic spot maintained by the Ministry of Transportation. The rapids have a fall of no more than about half a metre. The site is just a a couple hundred metres west of Hwy 69, making a nice pit stop on the long journey.

Unfortunately, this part of the highway is due to be converted to a limited access road, meaning that access to this little oasis is likely to be lost.

This site is coded yellow because there are no trails and a visitor might get turned around in the forest. Visiting may require traversing steep slopes.
