A rugged, more primitive Provincial Park that was at one time a busy place. Actually had a OPP. detachment known as Middle Falls. Close to the Pigeon River border crossing. Remnants of old Government structures. Known for sightings of illegal immigrant crossings, and unknown creatures.

The falls are very pretty. We enjoyed the park and the beauty of the area. Another natural wonder worth stopping for.

For our first half hour in Ontario, this park was a great teaser to all the scenic hiking Ontario has to offer. Easy to find the waterfall, and it's fun to look back at the US on the other side.

We hiked to the lookout and loved our hike! A good workout, but not too difficult with a GORGEOUS view to reward you at the top. Take a water bottle and a snack with you.

This river divides the US and Canada and is found just off Hwy 61 north of the border down Hsy 593. Look for the river and pull off and explore as it is not marked well. You can walk along the river to middle falls....More

We hiked to High Falls and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We liked that except for a very short distance it was not the same trail in and out. The climb in was easy to follow and not real strenuous. The view of the falls was amazing...More

Not Lisa. I suspect at this point it should be accessible with good boots. Definitely snow shoes. It gets sun so should be opening up.
