Mill Brook Falls

Dunbar Falls

Located near the Durham Bridge, Dunbar falls are a popular destination for locals in theFredericton area.  The falls flow over a river wide ledge, dropping down 8-10 feet and making a unique and picturesque view of the water.  The area around the falls is smooth rock as well and in summer time with lower water levels on Dunbar Stream, allows for easy exploring around the river underneath the falls.  The water is exceptionally clear and a short ledge can be found under the falls themselves. The trail to the falls is just short of a kilometre and mostly flat, however … Continue reading Dunbar Falls

Skinner Brook Falls

Skinner Brook Falls are very unknown waterfalls located in an area where you wouldn’t expect to see any features.   The journey to these falls is mostly on some woods road which are quickly deteriorating.  Once parked, its a short bushwack of about 400m to the brook.  I stumbled upon the brook a bit upstream of the falls.  Quick decision was to decide which way to go.  I decided downstream and was correct for once!   The falls are not very high about 8 and 10 feet for the two main ones but there are lots of small cascades in … Continue reading Skinner Brook Falls
