Driving Directions: Take Exit 11, north, off HWY101 onto HWY358. Follow this road 11km to the village of Canning, turning right onto HWY221. Drive 700m thru the village, turning left again onto HWY358 (at the memorial statue to Capt. Harold Borden). Continue 2.6km and turn right onto Bessie North Road. Follow this road 1.8km, then turn left onto Pereau Road.400m along, keep right to remain on Pereau Road, then continue 3km to where West Brook flows under the road.

Trail Description: the falls are viewable on the landward side of the road.  Smaller falls, I've seen them when the water is flowing during the freshet and they make a goodly roar for such a tiny fall. They are worth stopping at if you are heading up to Blomidon Park.
