Was a fun falls to see. The directions weren’t very clear. To see the falls and dam turn just before the bridge. It looks like a driveway, but go to the right and there is a small area to park. You’ll walk past a private home and it’s quite close. Worth the trip!

A nice part of the Trent River system. There is a Hydro Electric dam there also and the water flow through there can be picturesque.

Beautiful falls, worth the couple minute walk. Love that you’re able to walk through the falls and flats, not to mention the awesome swimming. Definitely worth the drive. Parking is on the shoulder of the road, free. There’s no trash or mess like other reviews state. It’s clean and well maintained with easy access.

I live at Healy Falls. This is not a public park that is maintained for the public to enjoy. That is why there are no garbage cans, picnic tables, and parking. Visitors have been disrespectful by littering, smashing glass, and leaving dog feces which has prompted the authorities to take more serious actions. It is definitely a nice to place to enjoy, but I am really sick of going down there and picking up everyone else's trash. There were upwards of 50 cars parking there everyday on private property...would you like 50 vehicles parked on you land each and every day? Please enjoy the Falls as they are and pick up your own trash. We love our mother Earth so show it!

Nice of Trip advisor to recommend, but beware. This is not a park in any way. There is no parking anywhere. The road is gated now due to people accessing. Police were towing vehicles parked on the highway and the private property. There are signs everywhere. THIS IS NOT A PLACE TO GO UNLESS YOU WANT MULTIPLE TICKETS FROM POLICE. We were informed that the dam is remotely opened and anyone below is putting their lives at risk. The officer explained that our stop there could have resulted in a vehicle tow bill, trespassing tickets, parking ticket and ticket for swimming below the dam. Is it worth $1000 stop for a cool pic, I don't think so. GO somewhere else.

We had never been to Healey Falls even though it's 40 minutes from home. We found it just south of 12 th line off Hwy 50 on a little side road which looks like someone's driveway. There is house right there but there is also a parking lot to the left. You park on sort of a grassy area and then walk about 300 ft to the water near a large dam. There were about 50 people there on a Saturday afternoon with good weather. We took a second to pick out our spot. Most people were hanging out in the "steps" of the waterfall or alongside the water fall. The dam and waterfall are about 400 feet wide. I couldn't understand why people weren't swimming in the pool at the bottom of the falls. We decided to go to the far end of the pool at the bottom of the falls and we were told by some people to take a path down to the water rather than walk down the rocks.

The walk down the path and on the other side of the pool is a bit rough. We set up down by the water on some rocks. Some people had lawn chairs but where we were you can't set up lawn chairs. You're sitting on rocks. We had blow up chairs and sat on them and swam. Went under the falls - lots of fun.

Went for a walk downstream -it was very shallow but kind of nice. Water shoes are needed or anywhere near or in the water. lots of people but all you hear is the noise of the falls. My guess is that a lot of folks from the GTA and Durham pop up for the day -nice to see. Everyone was getting along and having fun.

This is a beautiful spot if you want to just chill! It is quite of a challenge finding this gem. Once you cross the bridge at county rd 50, turn right, just before the 12th line, you'll see a dirt road that looks like a private driveway. Go all the way to end and you'll see the falls. Enjoy!

Gorgeous Falls and not very busy. Can totally spend a couple of hours here in the water and watching the falls.
There was a couple of spots full of garbage however and it would be nice for people to clean up after themselves.
Make sure to also bring sandals as the rocks are slippery and steep

On county rd 50, just before the bridge, turn right down a small dirt road ( it looks like somebody’s driveway) keep driving down, you’ll find this hidden gem in 1 minute. It took us a long time to find this place. There is no signs. Once you get there, there is space for parking so don’t worry about that. Very fun, we went for a swim at the bottom, bring water shoes, the rocks aren’t sharp, just slimy. Enjoy!!!! Highly recommend this hidden beautiful place!

Beautiful location but destroyed by terrible people. Garage was littered every where. Clearly the snowmobiles leave water bottles and beer cans at look out points. The lower parts littered with garbage, water bottles, diapers. So very sad.
