This is a very small washboard style cascade on Irvine Creek in Elora/Salem. It isn't something to go out of your way for, but it's a nice bonus view as you leave Elora. Most people will just pass by without a thought. Then again, most people aren't waterfall junkies like you and me!

Flow has been low when I've visited, but I've seen high-flow image from spring that make it look more impressive. The land around the falls is private, but the view from bridge is good. Looking upstream, the cedar-lined river looks like it might lead into the wilderness, even though homes back on to the woods on either side.

Downstream of the bridge, the land on the west side of the river is part of Veterans Park. It is possible to reach the shoreline of the river during lower flow. Visitors can stand on a flat limestone or dolostone platform. This gives a quaint view of the old bridge, and lets you look through the opening to see the falls. During periods of higher flow, it is best to avoid trying to reach river level.

Found at the end of Washington St; I used to call this waterfall the Washington Street Cascade. The cute little one-lane bridge has been closed to vehicular traffic for some time but can be walked across.
