About Kakabeka Falls
One of the tallest waterfalls in Ontario, and one of the first northern falls that people in Southern Ontario learn about. If you are traveling in the Thunder Bay area, do not miss this one. It is easily accessible and safe viewing platforms have been constructed on all sides. The falls are about 40 m high. Flows can vary, as the river is regulated. The view from the parking lot side is the most panoramic, but it's still worth crossing the footbridge for the view from the far side. It's too bad that you can't get to the base of these falls... it would be a spectacular, rugged view. But don't try it, please! What you can do, however, is hike through the park to a point on the river well downstream (out of view from the falls). This will take you by Little Falls at Kakabeka.
