Easy to find with drive up parking. Interesting signage offered a glimpse into Glen Gould’s life and fondness for the surrounding area. Who knew? Unfortunately, the lower walking trail was closed today.

Easy to miss, very few signs in town. Pretty beat up gravel road on way to falls. Nobody there when we stopped in, but a cool, close-up view of water falls.
