One last fall to check out when you are near West Gore/ Clarksville, Hants County, Nova Scotia; Old Sanford Brook Fall. The other ones are; Glen Brook Fall, MacInnis Brook Fall and a bit further away O’Toole Brook Fall.

Again this is one of those hidden treasures. Setting off from the logging road you wouldn’t even know there is a stream close by. However only about 30m separates the road to a deep ravine where the stream flows. Get by the mixed forest and you will be on the edge of a 60ft plus ravine. The ravine is either very steep sided with slate rocks or scree slope type overburden.

You make your way to the stream by carefully picking a good route down. Once don there it is another world!. Lots of these massive beech trees….some of the biggest I have seen in NS! Make your way upstream and after a few hundred metres you come to the 30ft waterfall. If you decide to walk the waterfall up there are a couple more 5ft upstream as you emerge from the ravine.


Directions:

Highway 14. Turn onValley Rd. Turn left on Glen Brook Rd. Keep straight at four way intersection and keep going on same rd, pass the Glen Brook Fall, to a parking spot at approx. 45.083508°, -63.801299°
