About Whitefish Falls on Whitefish
Whitefish Falls isn't big, and the falls themselves aren't even that spectacular. But this is one of those waterfalls that is elevated by thes stunning scenery in which it is located. The drive heading south to the falls is remarkable for its high barren hills of white quartizite. The falls are actually a long, low, narrow cascade falling perhaps 5 or 6 meters on a stretch of the river draining Frood Lake to the Bay of Islands of the North Channel of Lake Huron. The waterfall is partially hidden under the Hwy 6 bridge, as well as the bridge for the recently abandoned CP rail line. The river crashes down a narrow bedrock notch, foaming and boiling the rest of its way to a small bay below.
