DIRECTIONS: from Antigonish, drive north along HWY245 to Malignant Cove, approximately
17km. Turn right at the end of the road, onto HWY337, towards Cape George. Continue
northward 9km, parking at 45N50.446 62W00.085.

Trail Description: make your way down into the gorge and follow the stream down to the falls. There are two sets of falls along this brook to visit.

Pick your way down to the base of these falls to enjoy the best view of them. Named Horseshoe
Turn Brook because of a similarily shaped turn in the brook, you can follow this brook down to
its gut on the Northumberland Strait where you can see Prince Edward Island in the distance.
