As I was previously exploring in this area (Fall Brook Fall), I was looking for other possible waterfalls. The topo map was showing some possibilities where Barnhill River empties into the Bay of Fundy. I parked by some guard rails off the Shulie Rd and made my way downstream. Under the highway is a huge perched culvert. The design is very poor and probably prevents fish migration up this river.

A few hundred feet downstream, there are 3 drops in succession, the first would be maybe 4ft high and the two other are more cascade types. After these drops the river turns another 90 degrees and has a last drop of about 5ft. There is the remnant of an old bridge at its foot and this fall might be covered by water at high tide. I then just followed the west side of the cove and climbed up an impressive knife’s edge overlooking the river and cove.



Directions:

In Joggins, continue west on Shulie Rd towards Apple River. The last fall is at; N45.65877° W64.48606°
