I'd been walking over this creek for 30 years, always wondering if there was a little falls hidden somewhere. Thousands of people have crossed the creek, in fact, on their way to see Swayze Falls. Leave it to the Niagara Peninsula waterfall queen, Karen Limardi, to finally 'find' this waterfall!

The falls is a very small washboard-type waterfall, and only flows intermittently. It is located downstream from the trail crossing. This is of only limited interest to most people.
