Some great people have put together a collaboration celebrating the beauty of northern Ontario and its contributors form artists to farmers, past and present. A nice little stop.. But dangerous, enjoy from afar.

Located on route 17, just south of the OPP office. There were several hiking trails as well. A very scenic waterfall, though it was an overcast day when we were there.

Always a must when coming to Wawa. Although the water levels are controlled by the dam, you will never arrive when there is not a good water flow

A great falls not far off the main road, Hwy 17. Well worth the few minutes it takes to get there. Well maintained picnic area at fall viewpoint. Interesting historical commentary.

Very approachable, although more fencing than the last ime we visited. An easy walk from the parking area to all falls areas. Turn right BEFORE the cemetery and cross the blueberry fields along the way.*

Easily to be reached, as a roud leads to the parking lot near the falls. The falls are now controlled, as power can be generated from the river. So follow the instructions in order not to get in danger.

This is a surprisingly beautiful fall in the bush region of Ontario. Easy access nice location to enjoy the nature. Caution stay away from the river below falls. This is a power generation river where water raise fast no warning. Oh and take bug spray. No need in August Sept bur June July ouch without.

If you have time to spare these are some nice falls you go see without a lot of walking, actually you can drive right up to them. I would rate them a 5 on a scale of 10.
