DIRECTIONS: from Halifax, travel north along HWY 1 02, taking
EXIT5 north onto old highway #2, through Fall River. Drive
approximately 6.5km and turn left on Church Street in the
settlement of Wellington Station. Turn left again almost
immediately onto Kings Rd. , follow this dirt road a litle over 2km,
watching for these small falls on the left side of the road.
Trail Description: roadside falls, these small cascades can be
appreciated from the comfort of your car. They may only be 4
feet in total height, but theres a charm about them when they are
flowing, dropping over two miniature plunges before the brook
travels underneath the road and into Subenacadie Grand Lake.
Sometimes the larger falls are more breathtaking, but little surprises such as these, they make ones travels worthwhile on many days.
