Howland Falls are located in the community of Bear Island, near Mactaquac Provinical Park. As a roadside attraction, the 4-5m slot type falls flow into a large pool area which is nice for swimming. The rest of the location is great for exploring with rocky outcrops, small cliffs and valleys and large trees. Clear water and pools can be also found downstream.
To get there head to Scotch Lake Road from Hwy 615 near Mactaquac Park or Highway 105 near Bear Island. 900 Metres from the intersection with Highway 105 is a well constructed stone bridge. Trails to the falls are on either side of the bridge. Some areas are fairly steep, so caution is advised.
Les Chutes du Diable "Devils Falls" are massive falls found in Parc Nationale de la Gaspesie in Gaspe, Quebec. Flowing between the valleys high up on Mont Albert, les Chutes du Diable are impressive and powerful. The viewpoint is quite distanced from the actual falls, but the falls can still be appreciated from the high platform provided. Off trail travel is restricted in the park, but it would be neat to see these falls closer than the photograph. Of note, the photograph at right was taken during a rainstorm, on the last day of a four day backpacking trip (the best I could do, given the weather and that I was tired and cold!).
To get there, head to Gaspesie Park on Quebec Highway 299. Park at the visitors centre and walk across the road to the trailhead. From the trailhead, its a 2.5 kilometre hike to the falls viewpoint. The trail can be rocky at times, but is well maintained and signed.
Found south of Nackawic in Upper Queensbury, Coac Falls are in a steep and well forested gully. Coac falls have several steps from the river above and flow strongly over 20 metres into a 1.5 metre deep pool at the bottom. Interestingly, it was quite cold water found at Coac Falls! There are several rocks in the pool, so swimming is restricted to 'wading'. Despite the coolness, it was refreshing after a hot walk along the trail. The area also has several old stands of trees, which makes for good shady coverage from the sun.
To get there, take Highway 105 from Nackawic or Mactaquac and head towards Day Hill in Upper Queensbury. Watch for a white church on the north side of the highway before Day Hill. West of the church is a dirt road, named Lower Caverhill Road. The road leads north toward the falls trail. This road can be rough, so parking near the highway is recommended. Follow the dirt road for 600 metres approximately and a clearing and ATV trail is found on your left (west). A large log blocks the trail. Follow this path for 350 metres until a three way junction, keep right. Keep following this path another 400 metres approximately until a Y and keep right again. After 1200 metres, you will start to see a clearing on both sides of the trail. Listen for the falls and watch for very well worn and steep trail to your left heading down the the falls.
Big Rody Falls (pronounced 'Roady') can be found near the scenic seaside village of St. Martin's. Big Rody Falls are one of many that line the Rody Brook which eventually flows into the Big Salmon River. The larger fall in the series is protected by high cliffs and embankments which surround the river, making for a deep gorge. Big Rody Falls has two drops, both at 20 metres in height. Due to the sheerness of the cliffs surrounding the first fall, it is difficult to photograph, although very impressive as it falls into a sheltered pool. The second drop leads into a large pool and rocky 'beach' area, which can be a great spot for well deserved break. To get to the lower falls, steep ascents and descents are required to bypass the high cliffs. I took the southern side and descended near an old stream. Caution should be taken as it is a 60-70 deg descent in the trees.
To find Big Rody Falls, proceed to St. Martin's and drive through the village toward the Fundy Footpath trailhead. Take the Big Salmon River Rd and its turn off before Beach Road. Go around the loop and take the short extension of Big Salmon River road at the intersection of 'Beach Road'. I found the road rough in this area, so I parked shortly after it turns from pavement to dirt. From here, it is a 1.5 kilometre hike to a small road and camping type clearing on your left (20 T 307988 5032350). An old trail leads at the far end of the clearing. Follow the trail, keeping on the main trail at the Ys marked with a cairn. When you reach the double cairn take the left trail which is marked and is less prominent. (The right trail dead ends). Follow the double cairn trail until a T intersection (20 T 308643 5033251). Leave the trail as Rody Brook is closest to this point and a short bushwack to the water is required. Once at the brook, continue downstream until the first falls is seen from the top.
