June 23rd 2017

For a while I’ve looking for a place to throw in this short hike. After work one day I drove up to the Recolette Falls Trail in the French River Provincial Park. There is a short 3.2 km (round trip) trail. At the end of it there is a nice set of falls called Recolette Falls. These falls are located at  46.016591, -80.604150.

Driving back from my trip to Sansawaju Mountain. (Read about it @ https://ontarioadventurer.ca/2017/09/16/sansawaju-mountain/ ) I saw a sign for Onaping Falls just off the highway. There is a short hike around the area and a great view of the falls were A. Y. Jackson painted Spring on the Onaping River. These falls are located at 46.591127, -81.380897.

The last set I visited today are the Ragged Falls located at 45.391863, -78.906076. These falls are huge in the spring. Unfortunately I timed it wrong. Both the left and right section are overflowing during the spring melt. There is a dedicated trail and parking lot to these falls in the summer. In the winter you can park just outside the gate.
