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.

  3. […] Grindstone Falls is a bit tricky to find. It is Highway 129 going north from Thessalon about halfway to Aubrey Falls. When you pass the sign for Lafoe Creek, you have about 3 km to go. Look for the sign for Grindstone Falls on the right but tucked into the woods. When I was there in September/2010 there were also red ribbons tied to trees. The trail to the falls is less than 1 km., and a nice walk through light woodland with only a bit of rise near the end. The falls are pleasant and natural but only average. It is however a good stop if you are making the journey to Aubrey Falls. […]

  6. Great series of pictures of Aubrey Falls Harold. I worked in the area in 1969 for Ontario Hydro at Wells Generating Station and visited Aubrey Falls only once and only took one picture on a 35mm slide film. Hopefully I can return to get some better pictures. Here is a link to my only picture from 1969: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/47399085?tag=Aubrey%20Falls

  7. Its one of the finest falls in Ontario, even if it is a bit out of the way.
