“High Falls”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Impressive waterfall and home to some interesting art commemorating the pianist Glen Gould. The site is not easily found but well worth a visit.

Reviewed 3 October 2013

Well worth the trip if you are in the Wawa Area. Beautiful falls off the Magpie river. Nice view up close and some nice hiking in the area. Gorgeous !

“A Trickling Brook”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

The falls are one of those wonders that are a shot in the dark. As the water over the falls is influenced entirely by the Hydro Generation down river, the falls could be spectacular at the right moment. Maybe next time I will be lucky.

“If You're In Wawa, You Gotta Go!”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

The falls were beautiful, though a bit out of the way. (I was glad we had our GPS.) There is a nice trail / boardwalk for hiking up the side of the falls for a great view. Totally worth the short drive out there and my little ones appreciated the latrines. (Be aware they are outhouses - not flush toilets.)

There is also a covered pavilion with picnic tables. It would have been a great place to enjoy lunch.
