This is yet another small waterfall and cascade section found within Algonquin Park. I have not seen any photos of this site and don't know how big (or small) it actually is.

The total elevation drop from Little Cauchon Lake to Laurel Lake is 16 m. On mapsbyjeff.com , notes indicate that the portage has a 5 m elevation gain. I suspect that the height of the waterfall is less than 5 m.

On provincial aerial photography, there is a long whitewater section just upstream from Laurel Lake. Another hundred metres upstream, there are a few smaller cascades in the woods, prior to Little Cauchon Lake. The creek connecting the two lakes is less than 200 m long.

It should be possible to paddle to this site from the access point at Brent. The falls are about 11 km to the west, and so this is too far for a day trip.

If you have visited and can provide any tips or share a photo, I'd be happy to hear from you.

Waterfalls of Ontario Project

This project has been online since 1999, in print since 2003, and on social since 2011. (See archives: 2003, 2012, 2018). It was the first to inventory and map Ontario's waterfalls for recreational purposes. With your continued help, it grows. Learn more...
