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.
