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.

Interesting little falls especially in the spring when the ice ice just melting. No real parking but nobody minds you parking on the road side. Its only a ten minute trek back to the falls from your car

This place is hidden away, even though its just at the corner of Highway 6 and 21. Not well maintained. Inglis waterfalls are far better.
