“Natural beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Hog's Back Falls is one of my favourite places to go in Ottawa to enjoy nature, take a few photos and kick back and relax. In the Spring the power of the falls is deafening.

“Nice to place to take a load off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

May not be the must place to visit in Ottawa as they no longer allow you swim in the falls. Good for a few pictures and nice to relax and escape for an hour. There are a few geocaches nearby as well.

“Great falls not the Niagara Falls don't be confused”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

There's a place I like to be when the ice breaks and watch the ice burg fall into the falls. Don't confuse yourself this is not Niagara Falls, but its still very interesting. Summer time students like to take a break from studying from Carleton and go a sun themselves at Hog's Back.

“Romance Plus...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I love this place. Whenever you need a pick me up, or want to share a special place with someone special, this place works for me. I just love this place, time after time. Go, you won`t regret it. And then, go back.

“A watery fun time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The Falls of Hogs Back are unique in the positioning of the park surrounding them. Pic nicks, walking and boating can all be experienced there. Mooneys bay beach is adjacent to the falls where swimming and sunbathing are there for the so inclined. A picture perfect place.
