This is a really small rapids of limited interest to waterfallers. But it's quite popluar, being easily accessible to people following the Hwy 60 corridor through Algonquin Park.

There is only a bit of whitewater, so don't expect much. The whitewater is created by some veru low ridges of rock that break the water surface. Anneke thinks it's a great place to picnic!

A sign along Hwy 60 marks the entrance to a parking lot for this trail. From the parking lot, there are two trails leading west to the rapids. One quickly descends the valley and follows beside the river most of the way to the falls. The other is further inland and makes a quick right turn as you get close to the falls. Both are about 1 km; use both for a nice loop. I've been told that the trail to the falls can be muddy during wetter weather.
