Ontario is full of wonderful works of nature. Home to rolling hills, crystal clear waters and panoramic sights, there’s no wonder why outdoor enthusiasts love exploring our beautiful province. That being said, if you’re looking for an outdoor adventure, head to Aguasabon Falls, a stunning waterfall that flows along a 2.6 billion-year-old rock face.

Aguasabon Falls is closer to the border of Manitoba than it is to Toronto. It’s about a 12 hour drive for us here in southern Ontario but if you happen to be in the area, it’s a sight worth seeing.

According to the Township of Terrace Bay, this must-see attraction stands tall at 100 ft. and cascades into the Aguasabon Gorge –  a 2.6 billion-year-old rock face.

It came to be in the late 1940s, “through the Aguasabon Hydro Development that created a source of hydro-electric power to breathe life into the soon-to-be Township of Terrace Bay and the local pulp mill.”

A damn was established for the project at the north end of Long Lake to redirect water south, away from Hudson Bay.

“All this was done to ensure an ample supply of water would be available for the Aguasabon Generating Station—a massive undertaking, to say the least, and a significant achievement for Canadians,” shared the town.

And as a result of that diversion, Hays Lake “enlarged to massive proportions and the spillway created the falls you see today.”

Now that’s what we call a work of art.

And be sure to bring your hiking boots, because there’s a ton to see.

Embark on the 53 km long Casque Isles Trail which guides you along the north shore of Lake Superior.

Maybe you’re more of a beachy person and would find joy walking along to Terrace Bay Beach and while you’re at it, hike to Danny’s Cove, located near the beach.

And there you have it! Add this waterfall adventure to your summer to-do list.

You can’t go wrong with this view.
