I left my car where the Sheddley Rd became more of an ATV trail. I followed it for a while until my GPS pointed me to a fall on Horse Brook (N45.25277° W64.42343°). The bushwack is easy with well spaced trees. Funny sidebar is that I made it to within 200m of this fall but turned around about ten years ago. I was snowshoeing for about 8km to get to this point and decided that whatever falls could be on this brook were the tiny ones I had seen already. Big mistake, the biggest fall was just ahead! That’s a general lesson in waterfall hunting. You just never know if a bigger fall is just ahead!

Came back to Sheddley Rd ATV track and followed it towards Sheddley Cove. At one point, I could hear the humming of a fall and turned to the left and cut across about 200ft of forest. There at the bottom of a small ravine was a two tier fall of about 25ft in total at; N45.25430 W64.43366. I hiked out the rest of the brook to the cove and returned to my car via the ATV track.


Directions:

Highway 358 towards Scots Bay. Turn left on Sheddley Rd and go past the house and farm. The road is public (I asked a local) although it doesn’t appear to be. Drive as much as you want or as much as your car can take.

The public Shedley road ends at the one house on the road. The logging road is private property open only to atv and foot traffic. If vehicles travel this private road it will be closed and gated.
