DRIVING DIRECTIONS: from Windsor, take Exit5 off HWY101, eastbound, towards Brooklyn on HWY14. Turn left at the war memorial in that village, 8.6km along, heading up the hill and trending right as HWY14 continues about 1km further along. Drive down HWY14 a further 16.8km, turning left onto HWY202. Follow this road 550m to Meehan and Richardson Road can be rough at times. Watch for a dirt road to your right at 1.2km. Park off the side of the road here.

TRAIL CONDITIONS: walk down the hill along the road to the end. Follow the evident path to your right alongside the top of the ridge to the falls.

At one time, well taken care of, the stairs leading down to the base of the falls are no longer safe, but the platform above is still sturdy enough to offer a nice view of the falls. Hiking downstream a few meters, there are steep descents to the base of the ravine, hike back upstream along the left hand side to the falls.
