A River Runs Through It

As of last weekend all of the ice has disappeared from the lakes and rivers around the Muskoka district. Time to get the boats prepared. The lake levels are not as high as previous years due to lower volumes of precipitation this past winter.  Traveling a few minutes east of the Town of Rosseau on Highway # 141 you will find the Rosseau River. This is the Upper Rosseau Falls located right beside the road. There is also a Lower Rosseau Falls about 1km downstream as it flows into Lake Rosseau.

High Falls Hike

I went for a little adventure up to High Falls near Bracebridge hoping the water would be rushing over like a mini Niagara. High Falls is fed by the north branch of the Muskoka River and is one of the steepest falls in Ontario. The area is actually a park with washrooms, picnic tables and BBQ’s setup. The gates were closed when I arrived so I had to perform some rudimentary ninja navigation techniques to get in, Shush! Here is a Map

FYI – There are quite a few other falls around Muskoka that I have been to including; Bala Falls, Rosseau Falls, Bracebridge Falls and the Wilson Falls. All worthy of a visit.
