Uisge Ban Falls – Cape Breton

Last week we had the pleasure of discovering another Nova Scotian waterfall – Uisge Ban Falls, near Baddeck.  The day was lovely, the company great (nieces and their dad), and the vegetation absolutely lush!

A few mosquitoes, but not too bad since we kept moving.  The falls are located in a deep gorge (150 m), pretty neat all on its own.  As a prelude to Uisge Ban Falls this tributary to the river spills down the walls of the gorge.

The falls are really pretty spectacular (16 m) compared to those around Halifax, alas given the time of day (sun and angles), my photos don’t do the falls justice.  Try here for other photos.

These lovely falls are very accessible by following a short trail in the provincial park there.  Hiking at a leisurely pace with kids of various abilities took us about 2 hours in and out.  Great information is found on moosebait.com.
