Fourth Chute: Ontario Waterfalls

Fourth Chute: Ontario Waterfalls

Fourth Chute Upper: Ontario Waterfalls

Loggers found five sets of waterfalls and rapids on the Bonnechere River and built Log Chutes around them. This is the Fourth Chute of the group. It has an upper and lower falls, both easily accessed. While both are small, this is one of my favorite waterfalls in Eastern Ontario Region because it has some interesting elements around it which are great for photography. Bonnechere Falls was the first chute, the Second Chute is in Renfrew, the Third Chute is in Douglas, and the Fifth Chute used to run through the gorge at Eganville.

Rating: (Both)

GPS Location: N 45° 30.2′ W 77°00.42′

Warning: It can be dangerous to view and photograph waterfalls. The footing can be wet and slippery, and an accidental fall can result in serious injury or death. Note also that many sections of waterfalls are on private property. Please respect these rights.
