A small rapids or cascade just beyond the west end of Biggar Lake. The total fall here is just 2 m. I haven't seen this waterfall and obviously don't expect it to be sizeable. But as we all usually figure out, a waterfall doesn't have to be big to be attractive. If you've visited, please let me know what we can expect to see.

This site is also referred to as Twin Falls. At lower flow, the river splits in two and falls over a low massive ridge of bedrock in two places, about 5-10 m apart. This forms the twin falls.

I've read that people access the falls via canoe by putting in at Algonquin Access Point #1 - Kawawaymog (Round) Lake Access Point. This is still an 18 km+ paddle, and is obviously going to take a few days.
