The hike is described in the Mackenzie River post as you basically will traverse this brook en route to the falls on the Mackenzie River. I had spotted some dark spots on sat imagery on this brook and I wasn't disappointed. The only way to enter the gorge at a few places is to be on the north side of the river as the south side has super high cliffs. there are at least 5 drops all within sight of each other. One of them has this really super cool looking cave carved out on the brooks edge. I couldn't get to it as the water was high and cold but I would love to see a picture of this place (N46.79904° W60.83112°).

Falls on the Benjies Lake Brook are centered around N46.79894° W60.83125°.

Directions:
