Just when you thought you’d seen all the most beautiful waterfalls that Ontario has to offer, this might be one of the best ones yet! Oxtongue River-Ragged Falls is said to be one of the best waterfalls in the whole province.

Located near Algonquin Provincial Park, these thundering whitewater falls are a sight to behold.

A short trail from the parking lot will take you straight to a lookout point so you can witness the waters in all their glory.

Further up the trail, you will come upon Gravel Falls, which “demonstrates the powerful, erosive force of glacial meltwater,” says Ontario Parks.

Both Ontario Parks and Muskoka Tourism have called Oxtongue River-Ragged Falls one of Ontario’s top 10 waterfalls.

You’ll be treated to some incredible views of rushing river rapids and cascading waters.

Ontario Hiking says that the waterfall flows over the granite rocks of the Canadian Shield.

According to Ontario Hiking, this is an easy hiking trail that is approximately 1 kilometre there and back.

Ragged Falls are around 80 metres high and there is a fence along the edge of the Oxtongue River so you can observe it from a safe distance.

This provincial park is open seasonally from mid-May through October. This year, the park closes on October 22nd.

It’s the perfect pit stop along the way to Algonquin or as an activity during your visit to cottage country.
