Aubrey Falls: Ontario Waterfalls

Aubrey Falls is a tremendous waterfall. I was disappointed when I first saw it but when the dam above it released its water, it became a vast powerful falls in a natural scene of colorful lichen covered rock and forest. This sudden flow could be dangerous, so be alert.

To reach the falls, take Highway 129 north from Highway 17 in Thessalon, and find the signed entrance to Aubrey Falls 9.8 km. past the intersection of Highway 556. Don’t be fooled by the signed road to Aubrey Falls Generating Station just before it. The entrance road ends at a parking lot and the trailhead in. Read the signs about the timing of water release. When I was there in mid-September, it was at 11 AM.
