About High Falls on Eels
High Falls is a beautiful waterfall located far from human development. You used to be able to hike 2 hrs from the nearby Petroglyphs Provincial Park, but this trail is now closed. The falls are not actually in the park, but are in the Peterborough Game Reserve. The site is quite unspoiled and natural. There is a long hike in from the road which probably takes an hour or more. A canoe trip up the river saves time, as you can zip right across the small bays and wetlands, instead of having to walk around them. It also lets you explore the west side of the river, from which better photos can be taken.
