After work I decided to check out a few waterfalls. The first one is just a small dam off of McDougall Road. It is located at 45.361763, -79.966465.

From here I drove to Broadbent to get a shot of an awesome set of falls. They are located at 45.468842, -79.826765 and can only be accessed by water or asking the owner of the property.

There is another small set of falls located at 45.465764, -79.829277 which weren’t worth photographing. From here I went to the Hurdville Spillway located at 45.441354, -79.921215.

Just a kilometer up the road is Knoefli Falls. These falls were just roaring. I had a really hard time getting a decent shot with long exposure times. These falls are located at 45.666278, -79.721651.

The Poverty Bay Chutes were next on my list. The chutes are on the Magnetawan river near Magnet road. There is a portage that I was able to get a photo of the chutes from. They are located at 45.684417, -79.751677.

A friend of mine was telling me about when the township shut down the Hurdville dam for repairs, and he hung out in these three pools off the Manitouwabing River. So I went back to the golf course and hiked through some woodland. They are located at 45.403692, -79.962339. Without a drone it’s impossible to get a good photo of the 3 pools. The other access to these falls is by parking where McDougall Rd meets the Seguin River and paddling west on the Seguin then North up the Manitouwabing.
