I have no information or photos about this waterfall. It is labelled on the amazing map of Algonquin Park that has been prepared by mapsbyjeff.com All that he notes is that there is a 'Tall and Skinny' waterfall at this location.

The photo shows 'Hardwood Creek Falls' which was submitted to me by Mark Fryars a number of years ago. I think that this is the same spot, but can't guarantee. Does this image look like a tall and skinny falls?

Examination of topographic maps shows that the greatest concentration of contour lines is near the river. Thus, I expect that this is only visible when paddling down the river. A short lookout trail from the road is found just to the west. It gives a spectacular view over the Barron Canyon, but I don't believe that the falls are visible.
