Bennett Brook Falls

IMGP0470 IMGP0469Bennett Brook Falls are found in Fundy National Park.  Bennet Brook Falls are chute type falls found near the end of Bennett Brook as it joins with the Wolfe River. The falls show the change in direction of the brook and at the bottom, flow under a suspended rock.  Although the type of falls doesn’t allow for a great picture, the falls are unique enough to warrant a visit.  

To get there, head toward Fundy National Park on Highway 114 from Alma or Penobsquis.  Park at the Bennett Lake parking lot and cross the highway by the new walkway and overflow to reach the trail.  Follow the Bennett Brook trail until it decends down through the forest to the river.  Once at the river, go upstream on the closest brook to the trail.  The rocks are very slippery in this area, so use caution.  Also, climbing through the woods may become quickly difficult due to the almost immediate steep cliffs around Bennett Brook.  The falls are only two minutes off trail from the first intersection with the river.
