Regarding trail Diligent River Canyon (Wards Fall) near Parrsboro, NS

Diligent River Canyon and Ward's Falls do not appear to be at the location as described!? "This word you keep using. I don't think it means what you think it means." I walked along the stream as per the trail description and could not locate the canyon nor falls. Could it be that the author described George Fraser Slot Canyon instead, and just got the location mixed up? Apart from the blueberry fields, this hike is definitely not worth the effort in my opinion as you have a ton of bush to push, there are a large number of marshy areas, you end up going ass-over-teakettle at least a few times and the stream isn't really all that impressive compared to other locations. It's nice as streams go, but I was disappointed when I didn't find the features as described.

I have a GPS track of my trials and tribulations for this hike should anyone be interested. The hike was certainly challenging! Unfortunately, if you're looking for beautiful waterfalls, canyons and features as described you'll be disappointed.

Hey there

I am the one who also posted the geogre fraser canyon trail so I know one form the ohter. Did you download the gps i posted? All the pictures on the trail are genuine and were taken at diligent river. Its easy all the canyon and falls are upstream of the wards fall hiking trail. I decided to go through the bush to the stream in order to save time as the hiking on the trail is something like 6 km return. The rive looks like nothing at first but if you follow it long enough you will eventually get to the canyons. Email me if you need more help. The canyons are real and beautiful

Cheers

Ben

Hi Ben,

I wasn't able to download your GPS track during my hike, but I had my GPS along the way and attempted to match features as shown in the trail description.

I have my GPS track from this hike, it's very likely I was hiking in the wrong spot. How do I upload my track so we can compare both and see where I traveled in comparison to your track?
