About this Waterfall

There are several waterfalls along Martin's Creek. For many years, I missed the really nice part, which is just 5 minutes along the Bruce Trail away from the Rockway Falls parking area. This is a gorgeous plunge waterfall, small, but well defined and offering good photos. You will have to work a bit to get down into the gorge, but it's not impossible if you take your time. The shots from above are nice too. A few hundred metres upstream, a smaller waterfall is found near the top of the slope, deep in the woods. This upper waterfall is the one shown here. Consider these to be seasonal waterfalls. They will be dry for much of the year, so plan to visit during wetter periods.

I had originally found just the upper fallsby walking in from the road, but I highly recommend against that route! Ouch! Just follow the trail east from the Rockway parking area and you will cross the stream. One falls just downstream, another a ways upstream. Dry most of the year, so be sure to visit in wet weather!
