Our Responsibility
Waterfalls get closed when people are injured or ruin lands.

Please don't trespass, don't litter, and stay on the trail.
Warning: Waterfalls are dangerous - You aren't permitted to use this site unless you read, understand and accept the Website Disclaimer

There isn't too much to see at Rackety Falls. A very small water level control dam on the upstream side holds up the water level in Little Bob Lake. There is a tiny cascade just downstream, but when I say tiny, I mean it. The creek then flows through a concrete box culvert under the road and enters the woods on the west side.

To be clear, there is a slightly larger, but still small cascade just metres downstream from the road. It is visible from the bridge, although since you are looking downstream through the woods, the view isn't great.

The land parcel map shows that this creek is not owned by a landowner (sometimes they are), but that the land on either side is private. The land parcel map also shows that the road allowance along Rackety Trail is wider than normal here. So, to get technical, you may be able to legally wander down the creek bed during low flow. The land around the creek is private, however. Please remember that this website does not give you permission to trespass.

If you live or cottage in the area and can correct or confirm my information, please let me know.
