This is a series of low, long cascades, found downstream of the dam at the north end of Four Bass Lake. I have never visited, but have been told that there are well-marked trails leading north from the Matabitchuan Generating Station. Parking is reportedly available in front of the station.

Maps show a trail leading northwest, more or less follolwing the path of the river. After about a kilometre, the trail and the river both hook sharply to the left. The falls are not far past the hook. From aerial photography, I see a second section of cascade after the first one.

This falls is marked as yellow because it is fairly remote, and because I don't have full information on how to reach it. But I was told that the trail is well-marked. This is just outside the Matabitchuan River Conservation Reserve.
