About Port Hope Rapids
Several small rocky rapids can be found along the lowest reaches of the Ganaraska River before it empties to Lake Ontario. There are no waterfalls, but rather a number of wide, very low rocky steps spread out along perhaps a kilometre. Waterfall photography is very very limited, but the Ganaraska Trail runs along the river behind the historic downtown, making for a nice walk. This is by far the first water over bedrock that you will encounter on your way east from Toronto. The rapids start about 100 m south of Walton St and continue north to beyond the footbridge at Barrett Street.
