About this Waterfall

This is the second largest waterfall on Manitoulin Island. It is smaller and less pretty than Bridal Veil Falls, but is still worthy of a quick visit. This waterfall is about 10 m high, exhibiting a small, but fairly reliable flow. The falls is classified as plunge waterfall,but two prominent ledges of sedimentary rock break the profile near the top of the drop. There are bathrooms/outhouses located at the parking lot beside the falls.

For the best view of the waterfall, continue south on Hwy 6 for about 500 m to the first road on the left. Turn left, and follow this dirt road back north to a very small gravel lot beside the river. If you are careful, you can scramble down the valley walls to the base of the waterfall to explore the gorge bottom.
