DRIVING DIRECTIONS: from St. Peter's, take the West Bay Highway/Pepperell Street 31.8km to Cameron Mountain Falls (45N42.522 61W04.233). Drive up this road 2km, taking the second left (45N41.711 61W03.327). Follow this road to a fork in the road and trend right, continue on about 2km, turning right again on signed road O.R.#2, and trend right again at the next fork in the road. Follow this road to its conclusion.

TRAIL DESCRIPTION: follow the remains of the road to a trail into the woods. This trail follows the edge of the ravine to a forest-campsite. There is a rope in place to help in descent to the bottom of the falls. Usual caution must be taken with ANY rope that has been exposed to the elements.



The falls can be quite loud, easily audible from the parking area, some 400m away. These are a twin set of falls, the right hand set channel thru a tight cataract before plunging to the streambed while the left side tumbles down a steep rocky cascade.
