High Falls, Pott’s Falls and Little High Falls, Muskoka
It’s almost unbelievable, but it’s the place where you can see three waterfalls at once, within 200 meters. These impressive falls, which feature three waterfalls – High Falls, Pott’s Falls and Little High Falls – are located 10-minute drive of the Bracebridge Downtown by Cedar Lane Exit of Highway 11, Bracebridge ON.

The falls are surrounded by forest with hidden paths and above the Little High Falls is a wooden bridge with a view of the smaller stream leading to the river. Above the High Falls is a large bridge which you can walk across and see both sides of the river.

During the summer, you can picnic and hike there. We were there also in winter time, when the whole landscape is white, or in autumn, when the trees are in a thousand colors. All three waterfalls offer a wonderful view in each season.
