Eugenia Falls

Location: Eugenia

Type: Plunge

Watercourse: Beaver River

Waypoint: Google Map

Summary: This is one of the most impressive waterfalls along the Niagara Escarpment.

Plunging into Cuckoo Valley, the Beaver River drops 23 metres over the Niagara Escarpment. One of the highest in Eastern Canada, this waterfall was the site of an early hydroelectric power station. Now, a dam upstream of the falls directs most of the flow through huge pipes, but even the trickle that remains creates a musical background to the dramatic view from Eugenia Falls Conservation Area.
