DRIVING DIRECTIONS: from windsor, take Exit1 east onto HWY1. Drive 5.8km and turn left onto Rockwell Rd. Follow this road 300m and turn right onto Beech Brook Rd. Follow this road 750m, parking just before you get to the campground. 

TRAIL DESCRIPTION: intermittent roadside falls, this plunge is loated immediately on the left side of the road. Make your way down the steep inline to the base of the upper falls. A lower fall, just downstream, cascades down 20 feet before Beech Brook continues its run towards Weir Brook.

I have visited these falls several times over the last year and only found them flowing one. They drain a large pond above them, but can go dry very quickly. When they are full up with water, they are quite pretty.


  1. Hello...Im wondering if you could give me an exact starting point on where to start the hike to get to the falls? We just started camping at Beech Brook camground and I want to take my son back for a hike. Im just not sure where exactly to start? Do you park by the office of campground? Is it a clearly marked trail? Thanks so much....could you please email me Thank you Tia :)

  2. Hello...we found the falls today! It was a great rainy walk today. I am sending you pics now to your @live email. I hope you received the ones of Little Meander River Falls :)
