About this Waterfall

This is an interesting little site that is worth a short stop if you're waterfalling in northern Muskoka. It's easily accessible from Huntsville. The "waterfall" is reallly only a long chute, with several cascade-like drops of a 2-3 meters each. But it is interesting in that the Buck River pushes through a straight bedrock-lined channel cut into dipping bedrock. A small dam just 25 m upstream of the falls serving to maintain water levels in Fox Lake and somewhat regulates the river's flow. At higher flows however, the chute produces spray and some short reaches of bubbling foam.

The whole scene is surrounded by fairly dense forest, with abundant hemlock and cedar. Don't push too far into the woods as the property eventually becomes private. Please do not trespass on the land on the right bank beside the house. This side is private!
