The trail takes you through the woods and across rustic wooden bridges along Duchesnay Creek as it dances down North Bay’s escarpment.
And don’t miss the small lookout tower at the heart of the trail network.
It offers views of Lake Nipissing and the charming Manitou Islands, which are especially breathtaking in the fall.
If you start your waterfall hike from the parking lot on Highway 17, you’ll get the best views of Duchesnay Falls.
This spot isn’t a one-season wonder. When the snow blankets the landscape, local volunteers roll out a network of cross-country ski trails for everyone to enjoy.
So, whether you’re chasing waterfalls or walking in a winter wonderland. Duchesnay Falls will not disappoint.
