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)

  2. Hi there,I have been told my GGG grandfather,who was a logger,is buried somewhere near the 4th chute on the Bonnechere River. I am wondering if there are any known burial grounds there? Thank you.

  3. Sorry for the late reply Esther. I didn’t notice any but there are still some old buildings there. Perhaps the local historical society might know.
