About Napanee Falls
This is a long, gentle cascade about 30 to 40 m long and 10 m wide near the mouth of the Napanee River, in the town of the same name. The falls is comprised of multiple little steps over thinly bedded limestone, giving the illusion of a long, gentle staircase. Likely as a check on erosion, parts of the waterfall have been edged by a concrete wall and concrete riprap. This doesn't spoil the view of the falls altogether, but does remind you that waterfalls were once seen as features to be controlled, not enjoyed in their natural state. The most unfortunate thing about this falls is that it is completely surrounded by chain link fence.
