This is a small waterfall located not far from the entrance to Silent Lake Provincial Park. I have never visited. It looks to be about 2-3 m tall, and actually forms a double cascade, with water following two channels around a tiny island. Aerial photography actually shows two falls along this short stretch of river. I wonder which one is shown in Gary's photo?

This waterfall (and the other one) can both be found by parking in the lot associated with the lake access. On the east side of the lot, there is a grassy area and what appears to be a trail that heads into the forest. The river is just 30 m from the parking lot. One falls is just downstream, and another is just upstream. A park trail crosses a footbridge over the river, which is just upstream of the lower falls.

If you know this site, can you help me to improve this entry? Are there actually two waterfalls?
