DRIVING DIRECTIONS: from BADDECK, at Exit9, follow HWY105, the TransCanada Highway, travel Northeast 20.4 km and watch for the falls on your right hand side, with a roadside pullout  just beyond.

TRAIL DESCRIPTION: walk back the few meters towards the falls. A game trail will lead you down to the base of the falls, but you can view the full length of them from atop the ridge. Not the most outstanding falls in the province by any means, but a nice diversion before the climb up and over Kelly's Mountain.
