A short hike along a somewhat defined rail leads you to a beautiful waterfall set into an outcrop of limestone.
As with most of my ramblings I was out looking for a long lost cave which was supposedly located off Beckett's Creek near Rockland, Ontario. I didn't have much to go on except a drawing of the cave itself, an indication that the cave was located 4miles SW of Rockland and the name of the creek. I set off from the Old Montreal Rd and followed the western side of the brook to find the opening which was suppose to be set on top of a bluff or cliff overlooking the stream.

There is lots of Poison ivy close to the edge of the stream so you are better off walking in the woods above. After passing under the power lines and walking another 5 minutes, I was pleasantly surprised to see a magnificent waterfall set on limestone blocks. On overcast days after a rainfall the place must look amazing!!! After taking a few pictures and video, I continued along the west side of the brook on top of the bluff overlooking the stream. I never did located the entrance to this vertical cave but the mature conifer forest
is very pleasant to walk through. Drop me a line if you ever come across this cave!

If you do not have a lot of time my gps track will show you how to access the falls quickly from Beckett Creek Rd.

Directions:

Highway 174 towards Rockland, Turn on Old Monrteal Rd and park at the bridge
over Beckett Creek.
