This is one of the many spectacular waterfalls that the hiker can visit in Southern Ontario. All around the western corner of Lake Ontario there are places where the local rivers tumble over the Niagara escarpment edge. This is the lower falls at Balls Falls (just east of Hamilton) where the water drops 80 feet down to a deep pool. At a time when the water was low I had edged my way out to the very lip of the precipice to get this picture. In following up Twenty Mile Creek, the river cuts across a limestone plateau upon which the explorer will find all sorts of interesting Karst features. Resurgences, sinks and soil pipes are common. Mark Harris has written an amazing book on Ontario's waterfalls (Waterfalls of Ontario) and in my book, Rockwatching, Adventures Above and Below Ontario I have dedicated a full chapter to this amazing spot.

Province: Ontario
Location: Agawa Canyon Park
Height: 175
Crest: 15?
Water Source: Black Beaver Creek

Black Beaver Falls is one of the three waterfalls in Agawa Canyon Park, which is most easily reached by means of the Algoma Central Railway.
The park is maintained as a scenic stop by the railway. The Agawa Canyon is on the edge of Lake Superior Provincial Park, and can also be reached by a hike of several days.

The Black Beaver Creek divides in two before falling into the canyon, creating a north and a south falls. It is a short walk from the train to the base of either of the falls.

Nearby Falls
There are two other falls in the park. Bridal Veil Falls is on the opposite canyon wall. The smaller Otter Creek Falls are on the far end of the park, which is less than half a mile away. The train leaves from Sault Ste. Marie, where you will find Crystal Falls.

Bracebridge Falls
Once called North Falls, this foaming torrent at the foot of the main street of town has been harnessed for municipal electrical power. Alongside the falls you will find the Bracebridge Hydro Generating Station. Bracebridge was the first town in Ontario to have its own hydro generating station. Built privately in 1892 it was purchased by the Town in 1894.

High Falls
A majestic falls known as "Niagara of the North"; this impressive 65ft. waterfall and spacious park on the north branch of the Muskoka River is located near the old regional headquarters of the Ministry of Natural Resources on the south bound lane of Hwy 11 . Picnic sites and rest facilities located on both sides of the river are 5km north of Bracebridge off Highway #11.

Muskoka Falls
The sites of South Falls and Hanna Chute generating stations are located at the junction of the Peterson and Muskoka Colonization roads built in 1858. An historic site marker graces the site of the Muskoka Falls United Church.

The Town of Muskoka Falls was the site of the first post office, established in 1862, built north of Severn Bridge. Originally surveyed in 1864 as a town site that was to be known called Muskokaville the village retains the name of Muskoka Falls to this day.

Wilson's Falls
A picturesque falls about 3 km north of Bracebridge off River Road is worth the detour if you like falls. It is now surrounded by some of Bracebridge's best walking trails. Watch for the new bridge linking both sides of the trail across the falls.

This is a big waterfall, and probably the most spectacular
waterfall in Muskoka! Bracebridge Falls may have more
water at times, but the setting of High Falls is much more appealing.
It has been called the "Niagara of the North" by some, although I
think that this is pushing it a little...
The falls is formed where the north branch of the Muskoka River
falls over a significant ridge of gneiss.
The Muskoka River continues south and falls again at
Wilsons Falls and then the two Bracebridge Falls.

The site has been developed to include a sizeable parking lot,
washrooms, BBQ pits and benches, but the falls themselves remain
relatively untouched.
You can walk across a Bailey Bridge over the top of the waterfall,
or follow a trail through the woods to the left of the falls to Little High Falls
and Potts Falls, on little creeks just a few hundred
meters downstream.

In 1948, a power plant was built to the far left of this photograph
on a third section of the falls. Plans are in the works for a major expansion of this power station,
which will definitely alter the appearance of the falls forever!

Take Hwy 11 north to Cedar Lane (Muskoka Rd 117).
Exit west (left), drive over the highway and turn into the parking area for the park
on the right side of the road.
You can explore here for an hour or two. Note! To my knowledge,
the waterfall is not accessible from High Falls Rd to the north.
Don't take this exit by mistake!

Unfortunately, a dam, bridge and urban development
have somewhat spoiled what must have once
surely been a fantastic falls! Still, this
waterfall is well worth visiting, and is a strong
reminder of the importance of waterfalls to society.
The town doesn't let you forget this, as the falls is
no doubt the focal point of civic pride.
Parkland surrounds the waterfall on both sides of
the river, and the view from the bridge is impressive.
A sturdy viewing platform on the left bank affords good views,
although during higher flows, you may expect to get mist on your camera
lense.

Probably 6 to 8 meters high, and about 30 m wide,
the flow is variable but usually maintained
through summer.
The Gneiss bedrock has been smoothed by centuries of wear by the river.
Geomorphologists believe that the erosive power of a
river is based primarily on its sediment load,
that is, the sand, silt, gravel carried along by the river.

Take Hwy 11 to Taylor Road (Muskoka Rd 42), and go
west (left). Follow Muskoka Rd 42 into Bracebridge
and turn left on to Cedar lane, and then turn right
on Entrance Drive.
Follow Entrance drive for just over 0.5 km and watch for the
municipal parking lot on the left side of the road,
just before the road turns sharply to the left at the bottom
of the hill.
Park in the lot and follow the walking trail into the forest.

Stay to the left to reach Bracebridge Falls, or go right to
reach Upper Bracebridge Falls.

You could also drive across the bridge into town, and
view the falls from the right bank (looking downstream)
of the waterfall, or from the bridge that goes directly overtop.

Elora Gorge Fallsyesican 2005-02-26

Class: Ramp
Size: Medium
Visitability: Outstanding
Accessibility: Free
Activity: Busy
Walk Time: 5min









The town of Elora and its gorge has long been a busy spot for summer day-tourists,
and for good reason: This isn't the sort of landscape one expects to
encounter in the middle of agricultural Ontario.
While the falls and a fair portion of the gorge is on public land,
much of the lower gorge is administered by the Grand River Conservation
authority as part of the Elora Gorge Conservation Area.
A self-pay kiosk is situated at the eastern edge of the park,
immediately under the bridge. You can also access the park by
its primary entrance south of the village on Wellington regional road 21.

While the falls and gorge are no doubt the main attraction for
someone like you, the "quaintness" of the town makes this a great trip for
non-waterfall-freaks too.
Numerous trails lead along the upper lip of most of the gorge.
You can access water level in certain locations, and can explore
much of the gorge bottom, providing the water flow is low enough.
A second gorge created by the much smaller Irvine creek meets the
main gorge cut by the Grand River, and is easily explored by even the casual hiker.

For all its popularity, you'd think that this park/village would be better signed.
In fact, it is difficult to find even one sign exclaiming "to the falls" or "access to
gorge, etc. I suppose that discovering the secrets of the gorge area for yourself
is part of the allure, but it is quite possible to miss a lot of the attractions of
this park unless you know where they are.
Here are two walks that you shouldn't miss:

1. The "Factory Route": For a different view of the falls,
cross the foot bridge over the Grand river from Mill St.
You will have to walk through the parking lot, turn right,
and walk along the short street through Elora's old industrial
section (pass about 2 or 3 buildings).
There is an access point past one of the buildings on the right.
You will see the river and possibly a few parked cars.
Walk towards the river and watch for the trail leading behind the factory.
This is a dirt trail that is well maintained, although
there may be a few slippery, rocky sections during wet periods.
This trail eventually morphs into the main trail that follows the
upper rim of the gorge (about a 2 hr return trip).
You can walk for about 200m before entering Conservation area property.
The self-pay kiosk is located immediately after passing under
the road bridge.

2. Lover's leap overlook and the Irvine Gorge.
To access these locations, walk up the steep residential
street (Price Street) that runs perpendicular to Mill
St (downtown).
Upon passing the stone fence (about 100-200m),
look for the short dead end street leading off to the left.
The trail to the these two sites starts at the end of this street.
Stay to the left and you will eventually arrive at the Lover's Leap
overlook, which provides a view of both the Grand (to your left)
and Irvine (to your right) gorges.
The main gorge is noticeably wider at this location,
and is locally referred to as "The Cove".
To find the Irvine Gorge access, return to the main trail,
and walk along the gorge until you come to a staircase.
Closed during the winter, this staircase leads to the bottom of the Irvine Creek gorge.
Flows are typically very low here during the summer,
and it is quite easy to walk along the gorge bottom
(maximum water depth about 5-15cm).
There are some very small caves that can be explored on the
far side of this gorge.
You can access the main gorge by walking downstream from
this location.
Your progress into the main gorge at this location is limited however,
by higher water and the lack of a continuous dry rock ledge.

Finally, an excellent review of the physical landscape of the
Elora gorge is presented by Ken Hewitt who was a professor
of mine during my days at Wilfrid Laurier University.
His book "Elora Gorge. A Visitors Guide" is available at many
local and larger chain bookstores in southern Ontario.
Dr. Hewitt presents much about the palaeozoic geology,
quaternary geology, hydrology and human heritage of the Elora gorge area.
There are even detailed field trip notes for 29 sites within the site.


From Hwy 401, exit on to Hwy 6 north which is also known as the Hanlon Expressway.
This semi-freeway speeds you past most of the town of Guelph.
At the end of "the Hanlon, turn right onto Hwy 7,
and watch for the signs pointing to the continuation of Hwy 6 north.
Turn left on to Hwy 6, and watch for a sign leading to Elora
on the left side of the highway. Turn left onto Wellingon # 7,
and drive for about 10-15 minutes through the countryside.
Upon reaching the village, you will need to make a right turn
on a "diagonal" road that leads to "downtown" - watch for
signs to the shopping section (turn right on to McNab street,
and then left on Metcalfe St.).
You have two options to park. If it is a busy summer weekend,
park in the public lot located on the left side of Metcalfe St.
before you cross the bridge over the Grand River. Follow the footbridge
across to the main shopping street in Elora (Mill St.).
If it isn't a very busy day, you should be able to find parking on
Mill St (first left after crossing the bridge) or the adjacent side roads.

Once you have found Mill St., follow it past the old Mill Inn to the end.
There is a lookout platform (closed in winter) that overlooks the cataract.

Falls by the campground







There is an unnamed medium size waterfall and a number of
interesting rapids in this Provincial park.
The day use fee may discourage a casual visit, but if you are looking
for a campground while travelling along Hwy 17 this is a nice stop,
and you can let the waterfall sing you to sleep.

Chutes Provincial Park is along Hwy 17 near the town of Massey.
It is the only provincial park between Sault Ste.
Marie and Sudbury and is therefore a handy stop when travelling across Canada.
In addition it is home to a series of waterfalls along the Aux Sables River.

None of the waterfalls are very large, and as far as I know
none of them have names.
The steepest of the falls is right next to the campground and you can
listen to it as you sleep.
This cascade is about 20 feet high. There is a beach area here.

There is a day use fee to visit the park.
It was $9.50 in 2004.
See the park website for the current rate.

There is a trail that follows the river upstream for about a mile.
According to the signs the river passes three of the Seven Sisters waterfalls.
I am not exactly sure what they are counting as a waterfall,
or where the other four sisters are, but it is a pretty area and a nice walk.
The trail passes the confluence of the Aux Sables and a smaller creek,
both of which have rapids.

Nearby Falls
Hwy 6 is 30 km to the east. This goes past Whitefish Falls and leads to Manitoulin Island
where you will find Bridal Veil Falls and High Falls.

Province: Ontario
Location: Lake Superior Provincial Park
Height: Several drops of 10-15 feet
Crest:
Water Source: Baldhead River











Another wild waterfall in Lake Superior Provincial park.
This one is easier to get to then Gargantua Falls and much easier to reach than Agawa Falls,
but is not as impressive as either.
A nice hike, but if you just want to see waterfalls, your time may be better spent elsewhere.

The Baldhead River Falls are in Lake Superior Provincial Park.
The falls are one of the sights on the Orphan Lake Trail.
The hike to the falls will take 1 1/2 to 2 hours one way.
It is a winding trail through the woods with lots of ups and downs, and
some nice views of rocky cliffs. Y
ou might also encounter bear on the trail. Something definitely growled at me.

This is a complicated waterfall, and it is impossible to see all of it at once.
It consists of several drops in the 10-15 foot range spread across a couple of hundred feet.
There is also an island in the middle, which divides the falls into a left and right fork.
At the top of the falls, the river splits separated by large boulders.
It then rejoins before being split by the island.

The trail leads down to the rocks in the middle of the left fork of the falls.
To see the right fork, continue down the trail and across the bridge.
You can then work up the left fork and across the island to see the right fork.

Nearby Falls
The Agawa Falls, Gargantua Falls, and the Sand River Falls are
also in Lake Superior Provincial Park.
The High Falls and Silver Falls are in nearby Wawa.
The Chippewa Falls are south of the park along Highway 17.

These are the most accessible of the Lake Superior Provincial Park waterfalls.
Stop and visit them while in the park.
In one day you can visit these falls, the Silver Falls and High Falls in Wawa and
perhaps one of the wild waterfalls Gargantua or Baldhead River Falls.
If you have a canoe and camping gear, you can travel up the Sand River to the
very remote and wild Lady Evelyn Falls and Calwin Falls, although most people
take the Algoma Central Railway train and travel downstream from Sand Lake.

The Sand River Falls are in Lake Superior Provincial Park.
They can be easily reached from the Pinguisibi Trail.
The Trail follows the river upstream.
The trail maps says there are three falls along the trail, but the first is quite small
and does not really count.
There are lots of rock and rapids in the river.

As you can see from the pictures, these Falls look quite
different in the spring than in late summer.

Nearby Falls
The Agawa Falls, Gargantua Falls, and Baldhead River Falls are also in Lake Superior Provincial Park.
The High Falls and Silver Falls are in nearby Wawa.
The Chippewa Falls are south of the park along Highway 17.
Chippewa Falls is part of the Lake Superior WaterFall Tour.

Water Source: Agawa River













Agawa Falls is in Lake Superior Provincial Park
If you are looking for an out of the way waterfall, far from cars
and people, this is the one for you.
The Algoma Central Railway is not too far away, but you will not see it.

The falls are at the end of the Towab Trail.
The trailhead can be reached via Frater road, off of Trans-Canada Highway 17.
Frater road is unpaved and rather rough.
The trailhead is about three miles from the highway.
The trail is 12km long, one way. Hiking in, spending some time at the falls,
and hiking out took over 10 hours, and unless you run, I doubt
you could do it any quicker.
The park actually estimates that it will take you 6-8 hours to hike
the trail one way.
Many people make it a two day adventure.
There are several camp sites along the trail, including one at the top of the falls.

The beginning of the trail is deceptively easy.
The first third of the trail is an easy descent through forest to the river bed.
The trail follows the river for awhile, and the scenery is very pretty.
Just when you think you will get to the falls in no time, the trail starts to look like this.
The last third is very rough, with lots of steep ups and downs.

Moose and bear can both be seen on the Towab trail, or so they say.
I briefly saw something big and moose-like on the way to the river.
One of the guys I met along the trail said he heard a bear on the trail.
He was a ranger at Tahquamenon State Park, so I'll take his word for it.

Nearby Falls
The Sand River Falls, Gargantua Falls and Baldhead River Falls are also in the park.
The High Falls of the Magpie River and Silver Falls are to the north close to Wawa.
The roadside Chippewa Falls are to the south of the park.
