Denlow Falls: Ontario Waterfalls

Not the best looking waterfall, but if you are making the difficult trip into Chedoke Upper or Lower, you get this one as a bonus as it is situated between them.

Rating:
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.
