My wife and I spent an hour walking the rapids. It was challenging in places, but well worth it. We plan on coming back when the leaves are turning.

We kayaked to the falls from our cottage on Oxtongue Lake--it was an awesome paddle, and a breathtaking experience when we turned the last bend and saw the falls in front of us

Easy walk from the parking lot right on HWY 60. Walking this trial will provide you with views of rapids and a waterfall.

A short, sweet hike in (even if the gate's closed). It's a picturesque class 4-5 rapid, but the park authority has not troubled to make it readily accessible or viewed from a lookout. A best view would be by canoe from downstream - put in...More

Was still raging even in -30C temperature, some nice ice features had formed. Car park was not cleared of snow so had to park on side of road, but trail had been walked so was fairly compacted to walk on.

If your canoeing from the river below the falls there is an area that you could leave your canoe, in a way pushed off aside along the shoreline, then just hike up to the top of the falls.
