This is the largest of at least a dozen waterfalls in the Short Hills Park. Unlike most of the others, this one is on the west side of the park and is easy to access. It has historically been known to some people as "Dry Falls." This is a pretty waterfall as long as it's flowing. There is a great viewing platform along the right bank. Also, look for a footpath around the top of the waterfall and explore the bedrock channel that continues upstream for at least 100-200 m. It's just as interesting as the falls itself.
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.
