Eastern Region - Waterfall List

Maps Featured Falls Full Roster

In general, waterfalls in this region are smaller and less impressive than those in other regions. But one thing that that stands out is that many more of the waterfalls are accompanied by picturesque old mills, old bridges, or dam ruins. This makes exploring just as much fun, even if the falls themselves are less impressive.

Very small falls like Balaclava Rapids, Babcock Mill, or Second Chute are next to picturesque old mills that help to make a great picture. Same with Pakenham Falls, set just downstream from Canada's only 5-span stone bridge.

If you're after raw, rugged powerful falls, you can still find these at the Hogs Back Falls in Ottawa, Healey Falls, or Egan Chute. Just be sure to manage your expections during a dry summer, as flows can decrease significantly. There are also some lesser-known surprises like The Gut, Cordova Falls, and Princess Louise Falls in Orleans.
