A little-known waterfall that also goes by the name of Richardson Falls. The falls are not large by any means, and probably dry up somewhat during summer. However, a pond and springs upstream should help to keep flow going for most of the year. The falls has two tiers, each of which is maybe 2 m high.

This site does require a modest hike from the parking spot. It's a long way from the main parking lot for the Duncan Escarpment Provincial Park. However, there is a short cut parking area on the east side of The Blue Mountain Euphrasia Town Line.

This waterfall is featured in the 'Waterfalls of Ontario' book. Please pick up a copy to learn more. This helps to support this project.

The short cut is marked as the Townline Access Side Trail. This leads into the woods, and by keeping to the right, will eventually lead visitors to the main Bruce Trail. Stay right, follow the trail down to the base of the valley, and keep going until you reach the falls, passing the large Pinnacle Rock on your way.
