Alert The viewing platform that was formerly located on the Dominion Trail was removed in spring 2021 due to safety concerns. This section of the Dominion Trail is closed. The trail is not safe for public use. Ontario Parks is currently reviewing options for site and trail rehabilitation.

To view the falls, travel along the Meadow Trail until it intersects with the Bruce Trail. Follow Bruce Trail west until it intersects the Dominion Trail. Go north until it ends at the closure. Be advised you will be required to return the same way.
Alert Forks of the Credit Provincial Park has been experiencing an increase in visitation.
