"Freedom to explore comes with responsibilities"
Some of Ontario's waterfalls are busier than ever. We have begun to see closures and restrictions. We all need to do our part to keep them accessible for everyone!
1. Keep yourself safe
People have been injured and even DIED
at Ontario's waterfalls. This limits our access to beautiful places like Albion Falls. Please read the safety page!
If in doubt, stay out!
2. Keep yourself out of trouble
There are waterfalls that you aren't allowed to visit. Some property owners are tolerant, but that's their choice, not yours. Trespassing gives our hobby a bad name. This web site does not knowingly
list sites on private property. If in doubt, stay out!
3. Respect your environment
Waterfalls can get lots of visitors and still look great for the next person. Please pack out your garbage. Also, please stay on the trail. Bare rock can be explored (if you are safe), but making new trails through the woods can quickly ruin a beautiful site.
4. Be courteous to others
Some waterfalls can get really busy on warm summer days. Even so, it only takes one uncourteous person to ruin a day out for someone else. Please just be kind to others and remember that this is supposed to be nature. Bonfires, beer, loud music and lawn chairs in the river ruin it for others.
