About this Waterfall

A beautiful low cascade hidden in the woods, yet not difficult to find. From Timmins, drive west on Hwy 101 and go just past Opishing Rd, but don't cross the river. A gravel lane leads off to the right, and bends right. This ends at a small parking area next to a simple boat launch. The falls are just 100 m to the west. Look for a trail leading west; it will be just inland from the shore of Opishing Lake. You can see the lake on the entire hike of just a few minutes.

The falls is at the mouth of the lake. If water levels are low enough, you can walk out on a gravel bar at the mouth of the river to take a photo. The aerial photography shows a few other smaller cascades on this creek, between this point and the cottages to the west.
