Take your time and enjoy old growth forest as you walk along a well maintained path to see this beautiful cascade waterfall. It's easy to get to the falls but it takes a little effort ( for us oldies) to reach a good viewing position....More

The trail to the falls is lovely but I couldn’t find a way to get be,ow them for better viewing. As it was, view was from above and quite nice. Trail continues beyond falls for a ways and was interesting. Very few trees had leaves...More

This was a nice stop on our boating trip. We docked and then walked to the falls. We watched the lock operation for a bit and then toured Maison Sweeney house. There is a blacksmith exhibit located here as well. So lots to see.

You can walk right up to the edge of these beautiful falls and feel the mist as the water cascades over the edge. Only a 39m walk from the road!

Have taken my son and dog here many times over the years to hike, climb, picnic, or puddle around in the water. Will be back for sure. Love it.

Great spot for a short walk or a medium hike. Park on the highway & it is only a 2 min walk to falls or park at the information center & choose from several hikes to falls or Bruce Trail

Beautiful day with easy walk to falls up top. Steep climb down to the falls but safe and worth the effort. We will be back to visit again at different seasons.
