I have seen one photo of this falls. It isn't huge, but is near-vertical and would be a true 'hidden gem' for someone to visit and photograph. A trail leads to Lumsden Lake from the George Lake Campground. About 2.5 km in length, it does not reach the falls.

I have read two articles that say that there is no trail to the falls. Explorers would have to make their way to the very south end of the lake. This point, about 500 m from the trail, is where the lake drains to a tributary of the Chikanashing River.

This waterfall is coded yellow because it is not found along a trail. I have not visited, but some day plan to follow the La Cloche Silhouette Trail northwest from the George Lake Campground. I'd then take the short side trail to the left (west) to get to beautiful Lumsden Lake. I'd then have to make my way through the woods to the south.

While this is hardly a truly remote area, there is a risk of being lost for a few hours. Anyone choosing to visit should carry a GPS and a map. If you find this waterfall, I would really appreciate any thoughts or photos.
