DIRECTIONS: from Windsor, downtown, follow HWY1 south
6km, then turn right onto Panuke Road. Continue on this road
7km to very near its conclusion at the boat launch area on
Panuke Lake. Park just down from the fork in the road that leads
to your right.

Trail Description: follow the woods road that leads down to the
right, cross the wooden bridge and proceed up the hill. At the
clear-cut, cut in along the tree line and down to the brook. Walk
upstream to the falls. There are several small falls along this
brook within 200m.

Hunters Brook is named for the original grantee, James Hunter.
The boat launch near the parking area is a popular area, and there is,
depending on space, camping in the summer there. July also features
the Panuke Lake Classic Bass Tournament. You have to be careful
on this lake though, the winds can pick up pretty quick here, and the
waves can become quite treacherous. At low water, usually in August,
 you must also watch for tree stumps in the water.
