This is a Nova Scotia Provincial Park. Several bridges and park benches along the route. Beautiful 50 foot waterfall at the trail head. Returning you can select an alternate route and walk along the North Branch of the Baddeck River. Signs of Moose are everywhere. Partridge are also seen. An occasional Bald Eagle flies overhead. Its as easy as it gets. About a 5K hike in all from the parking lot including return.
Exit 9 for Baddeck on Highway 105 in Cape Breton near Baddeck.
Coming from the NE turn Right, or coming from the SW turn left. Turn right after the bridge at about 4K. Turn left at the gravel road at about 10.5K. Turn left into the parking lot at about 4K.

UpsideGreat hiking trail with lots to see along the way. There are a few bridges that allow you to get great shots of the river below. Very well marked. GREAT for kids! Lots of fallen trees, etc, for them to run around. For the length of this hike, these falls are among my top 5 in Canada.
DownsideI can't think of one!
CommentWe hiked this in fall. I definitely recommend it in fall due to the mass amount of yellow and red leaves everywhere. It made it all the more spectacular.
There are two ways to get to these falls, so if you're not up for the longer route, there's a route that only takes about 20 minutes to walk.
