The start of the trail is blocked off by a gate and for the next 3km or so it is a wide ATV or maybe snowmobile trail. I took my mountain bike to save time since the ultimate goal is a waterfall at about 3km from the starting point. the brook you need to follow to get to the fall crosses the main road at approximately; 45.515950°, -63.233129°

The first part is through an evergreen forest qwith some pretty big trees but there are also some small shrum size ones that impede your way. Close to the ravines edge the forest opens up a bit more and the walking is easier. This fall is tall enough that you could have fun ice climbing on it. The rocks are pink with black spots and that probably means something to geologist type people. I ended up going down the ravine on the right hand side of the stream (if facing upstream) and you have to be careful beacuse it is quite steep

Directions:

Take highway 311 north of Truro and drive to Central North River. Turn left on Cross Rd and drive about 1km to dirt road on right. Park there and moutain bike or hike about 2.5km where you will cross a brook. Head downstream for a couple of hundred meters and you will be on top of a significant waterfall

Downside lots of bush waking. Comment keep walking on the atv trail untill you get to the brook, if you walk past the big brown cabin you went to far. Then just keep walking down the brook when you get there it is amazing and trust me just keep walking on the brook intill you get there and trust me you wont miss it keep walking.

Downside Hard to find the point when to leave the road to get to the falls. Comment I was not able to find the falls this time but am planning on going back to try again.
