This is located about 1 km upstream of Fourth Falls. While it is relatively easy to reach Fourth Falls, it's a much more difficult job to reach Wendigo Falls. Alessandro followed a weak trail along the river from Fourth Falls, but soon found himself bushwacking for some distance.

Wendigo Falls is smaller than Fourth Falls or Teddy's Falls, which is a bit further downstream. They are located at the western end of a long narrow arm of Wendigo Lake.

It *may* be possible to access the southern edge of the lake and paddle a few km west to the falls. The southern edge appears to be occupied by a number of camps, and I don't know if there is public access. Please don't trespass.

Land on the north side of the river is all crown land. There is some logging in the area, which may at some point allow for easier passage. But hiking through recently logged land is still no walk in the park!

Waterfalls of Ontario Project
