I was looking at some maps of the Yarmouth area as I was gong there to work. I noticed that the Salmon River is a main watershed in this area but I had never explored for falls on that system. A quick view of the sat imagery revealed some white foam on the bank of the river immediately downstream of a heavily wooded area. I then ask someone who lives locally if I knew of the falls. A friend of his confirmed it along with the name of Micmac Fall.

A short walk on an ATV trail follows the Salmon River as it flows downstream. A fe hundred metres on a fairly level path leads to some rocky outcrops and then the small Micmac falls. I have seen some pictures of people running that fall in the spring by canoe!

Directions:

Highway 101. Take the Salmon River exit and drive on the Hectanooga Rd for 6km. At this point there is a dirt road on your left. Park there and cross the Salmon River via a bridge and walk downstream to the fall following the ATV path.
