You can even pack a lunch and head down there, they have... More

Located just off the TransCan, the Scenic High Falls are worth a stop to get out of the car. You get to know a little about the local history with some info on the likes of Glenn Gould. You also get to check out some Gitchee Goomee's. There is a nice short jaunt that you can take across to the... More

Rough road to the falls but beautiful once you reach them. Worth the drive back and if you're feeling adventurous you can even walk to the top

WARNING- to get to this beautiful falls, you will have to travel approx 3+ miles on gravel, and some steep hills. But once you get there..WOW! There is also a very nice picnic area and an outhouse is available.

The drive to the small park overlooking the falls is an adventure in itself. The amenities in the park are good quality and well maintained. It is a nice side trip for an hour or two.

You drive along a dirt road ( 5 minutes off the highway) wondering where the falls are, then you enter a thick patch of trees, before it opens up displaying a beautiful waterfall. There is a walking area, picnic tables, washrooms and the place is very well maintained. It was raining while we were there, but you can park your... More

Fantastic views, worth the drive to check it out. The area around it is well maintained and the washrooms were a nice surprise on a long road trip.

This is a very large cascade type of falls that I found very cool because of how the falls makes a hard right turn to continue it's trip to the lake. Take some bug spray if you're traveling in the summer months.
