About This Park

Park Size: 13 hectares

Special Notes:
  • This picturesque waterfall is visible from Hwy #5. It is not accessible by vehicle.
  • There are no developed trails at this park.
  • Bring your own drinking water as potable water is not available in the park.
  • No firewood is available and no fire rings are installed. The gathering of firewood in a Park is illegal, so fires should only be used for emergency drying and warming.
