We stopped to stretch our legs after being in a car for a while. It's very scenic and has some very nice trails. We love the lookout points. Beautiful. The kids had fun exploring and climbing on the rocks.

It's a lovely location but I wouldn't go far as to say that it's picturesque. It's about 1/2 hour north-west of Sudbury and a good hike to the falls themselves. But, if you haven't been there before, it's worth the climb over the hill to...More

very picturesque, the falls and the hills, trees, etc are beautiful. The best time to visit is in the fall (mid October) when the fall colors are at their best.

Great place to visit the falls in the spring when the water level is high or in autumn where when you can take in all the rainbow of colors that nature offers.

We had a great time hiking here. The view are just gorgeous. There are washrooms near the parking lot and an accessible viewing deck. Lots of graffiti on the rocks too.

This area is close to Sudbury and provides a very scenic view of a large waterfalls. Good footwear is recommended and persons with walking problems can see the falls from the AY Jackson lookout right beside Highway 144. The colours in the fall are magnificent.
