About High Falls on Muskoka
This is a big waterfall, and probably the most spectacular waterfall in Muskoka! It has been called the "Niagara of the North" by some, although I think that this is pushing it a little... The falls is formed where the north branch of the Muskoka River falls over a significant ridge of gneiss. The Muskoka River continues south and falls again at Wilsons Falls and then the two Bracebridge Falls. A footbridge across the crest of the falls does spoil the picture a bit, but the consolation is that you can explore the far side of the falls, where a smaller separate falls is hidden from the typical viewpoints. The stream flow data are from a gauge a ways upstream.
