Northwest Region - Waterfall List

Maps Featured Falls Full Roster

This enormous region covers about half of the province and is largely inaccessible by road. But don't be discouraged! The drive along Hwy 17 to Thunder Bay is one of the most scenic in Ontario. Big, impressive waterfalls like Aguasabon Falls, Kakabeka Falls and High Falls on the Pigeon River are easy to access by paved roads.

For the most part, even the powerful waterfalls are untouched. There is a catch, as some have been dammed for hydroelectic power, and can suffer from low flow in summer. Just don't expect to see torrents in August! This is especially true at Kakabeka Falls: Sometimes it truly lives up to it's nickname of 'the Niagara of the North'; other times it certainly does not!

Most of the waterfalls that are featured below are easily accessible and have only a very short 'hike'. At the same time, there are waterfalls in this area that need a longer hike, such as Red Rock Falls. Others are accessible only by water or plane. Please be sure to double-check your directions and to not let your gas tank run low.
