About High Falls on Barron
This is probably the tallest waterfall in Algonquin Park. It is well-known to paddlers, and can now be accessed at the end of a 4 km hike. Immediately downstream is the infamous 'waterslide', which is a natural slide falls over sloping rock. I don't advocate swimming or playing in any waterfalls because 'Waterfalls are not waterparks'. They are not designed nor safety checked. However, many people have played in this falls for years. The trailhead is found off the Barron Canyon Rd at 45.8895, -77.6856. Some resources refer to the trail as the High Falls Cheater Trail. The elevation drop from Stratton Lake to High Falls lake is about 29 m.
