Little Falls is a very small chute located immediately downstream of a small water control dam. It is perhaps 2 m in height. This is nothing special at all. As the first waterfall on the route north from Toronto, some waterfallers may wish to use it as a warm up.

A small parking area that used to exist on the south side of Rd 169 is no longer accessible; though you can walk across it to get to the falls, which are hidden behind a small rocky outrcop.

Som visitors park on Oakridge Drive, which is a residential street on the far (north) side of Road 169. If you choose to cross Road 169, do so carefully due to traffic. Parking may be available on Little Falls Rd, which meets Road 169 about 100 m to the east.
