Stunning falls, interesting to see the tree growth in limestone rocks. Path are not clearly marked, lots of rocks to get to bottom not best for children or people with knee issues. Pretty unstable path, have proper shoes.

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

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.

The falls are quite impressive, especially in the early spring. People can get quite close to the falls. There are many excellent trails including the Bruce Trail. In May and early June there are large patches of trilliums on some trails relatively near the parking...More

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.
