About this Waterfall

Update 2016: The waterfall that I used to call Little High Falls is now called Potts Falls. The waterfall that used to be called Potts Falls is now called Little High Falls. I have had the names flipped for many years! Thanks to users for pointing this out. This waterfall is proof that small can be absolutely beautiful! Located only a few minutes' walk from High Falls, just north of Bracebridge, this waterfall yields beautiful photographs.

A little wooden footbridge was built upstream of the falls several years ago. This doesn't ruin the picture but does take away from some of the serenity of the scene by giving tourists easy access to the waterfall. The site is well shaded, allowing beautiful mosses, ferns and sedges to surround the falls. But this also allows a TON of mosquitos to call this home, so be prepared if you visit in summer.
