This is a very small, but picturesque rapids located upstream from Elora. The rapids starts upstream from the bridge and then extends downstream by perhaps 30 m. The bridge itself is picturesque; I suspect that there is a specific name for this type of construction.

Unfortunately, the land downstream from the bridge is posted as private. Fortunately, you can enjoy the rapids from the bridge, and get a neat photo from under the bridge within the road allowance.
