Downtown Smiths Falls, around the dams and locks, can be an interesting stroll. There are many old stone buildings. But the falls itself is mediocre at best. It's only a little more than a whitewater stretch that runs behind an old stone mill. This was probably a little more fun to visit before the construction of the town and locks necessitated some major re-engineering. Flow data are from a gauge a ways downstream at Andrewsville.
Please treat our outdoors and other visitors with respect. Many waterfalls have been closed to the public because of bad behaviour. Also, note that waterfalls are on the traditional lands of Canada's Indigenous Peoples.
