This is another one of the many semi-hidden waterfall spots found in Sudbury's hinterland. There is a distinct upper and lower falls here, separated from one another by no more than 100 m. I found out about these falls thanks to the earlier work by Gary LeClair on his Facebook Page. I haven't visited, but fortunately Gary Smith has.

The lower falls is taller and narrower, taking the form of a slope cascade falling at a steady 30-40 degree slope. After passing through a jumble of boulders near the base of the falls, the river dumps into a small pond.

A wide dirt trail (probably for ATVs) leads west from Agnew Lake Mine Rd almost due west for about 200 m to the upper falls. The driving coordinates lead to the approximate location of the trailhead. The lower falls is about 75 m downstream.

This waterfall is coded yellow because the road in the area are not first rate, and because I have not visited to confirm the condition of the trail.
