About this Waterfall

The upper portion of White's Falls has been modified by a dam to maintain water levels in Six Mile Lake. As such, the flow through the falls is seasonally variable. But this is still an interesting waterfall to visit, as the lower 3/4 are all natural. There is a lot of bare rock to explore. It is located right off Muskoka Rd 34, just a few minutes from Hwy 400. If you keep to the right, you can drive into a small gravel parking area.

Please don't trespass on the land owned by the surrounding cottages. The falls are located along the main road to the Big Chute Marine Railway. White's Falls is named after Joseph Arthur White Sr who settled in the area in the mid-19th century. This site can be very busy in summer, where the lower flows permit swimmers to play around in the cascades. Be careful! The rocks are slippery!
