North River Falls (Colchester)

DSC09982A spectacular surprise is North River Falls in Colchester County, east of Parrsboro.  The falls flow over twenty metres to the pool below and the surrounding rocks make for a picture perfect visit.  A large pool also would allow for great summer swimming.   The trail to the falls is made of an old cart path and a rope has been left for visitors when decending into the gorge.

To get there, head to Lower Five Islands on Hwy 2.  Look for Little York Rd and proceed Northbound toward a fork in the road.  Take a left from Little York Rd and continue until you'll see an unmarked narrow roadway again to the left.  Park before a two story brown sided cottage, near the narrow roadway.  Follow the roadway until the trail begins down a hill and to the right.   The falls are on your left and a steep trail with ropes and handholds and leads to the falls.
