About this Waterfall

At over a hundred metres in width, Healey Falls is a big one! It can be an absolute monster at high flow. Admittedly, it has been partially compromised by the construction of an equally wide dam right across the top of the falls. But you are free to walk across the dam, which gives great views of the falls below. The Trent River falls probably 10-20 meters, not in one large plunge, but in a rugged series of wide steps. The limestone is thinly bedded yielding hundreds of little steps.

If the river flow is low, it isn't as impressive, but you get to easily walk right out onto the bedrock below the dam. If the flow is high though, watch out - the river blasts across the bedrock with fatal force! Found at the end of a short road called Woodland Estates Rd, which leads south off Northumberland Rd 50. Watch for Woodland Estates Rd just east of the County Rd bridge over the river.
