This is a gem. Great views, with platform and walkway to a second viewing area. Picnic area available. Vault toilets.

I love these waterfalls. The fence around it is a bit of a downer but the falls are beautiful and you can hike around them. :D Definitely nice to see.

The falls were excellent and a trip down the south trail to the next set of falls was a workout for two 49 year olds. The middle of the hike was a little hard due to the climb on rock out cropping's. Great photo opportunities and we saw a grouse in the middle of the hike.

It's rather a show-up and click destination, and the falls themselves are largely the result of the hydroelectric dam above, but pretty nonetheless.

Overall I would say the Falls were quite impressive. We visited early July 2014 and even though the water wasn't at full flow they were worth the short drive off the highway. There is a short hiking trail and washroom facilities if needed.

The falls were a spectacular site when we visited since it was late May and the rivers were flowing very strongly. Recommend to visit in spring if possible.

We went to High Falls last year while visiting family in Wawa. I've seen a number of waterfalls over the years (kind of an obsession) and this one is certainly near the top of the list. A bit of a drive in, but it is worth it. Make sure to bring your camera and a rain coat otherwise you will... More

The drive back to the falls is on a dirt road, but it is well worth it. There is a small picnic area, restroom facilities, and one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. I am so glad that I decided to venture to the falls during my one-day visit to Wawa!

Be sure to drive off the highway and see the beautiful scenic high falls! They are incredible and a real jewel. You can walk around a bit out there and there are washrooms, although somewhat rustic.
