Waterfall Detail: The Digdeguash River originates from a series of springs near McAdam and flows to the southeast before emptying into Passamaquoddy Bay. It is relatively shallow and flows over exposed bedrock. This combination produces many small waterfalls and rough water throughout its length.
The falls at Wymans Bridge is similar to others located further down stream. What makes it stand out is the beautiful location. The river makes a left hand turn as it collides with rock face along it western edge. The river slices through the bedrock forming a slide. There is no large pool at the base of this waterfall. Beyond the falls the river opens again and continues to twist and turn.
The Wyman Road is located 3.4 kilometers south of Lawrence Station on Route 127. Drive in the road approximately 380 metres and park along the shoulder of the road just before the bridge. There is a trail leading from the road to a clearing near the waterfall.
Visit Detail: I was informed of this waterfall by a Kayak enthusiast and decided too take a drive out one Sunday. One of the things that caught my attention was the amount of debris and trees stuck in the cross members of the bailey bridge. The bottom of the bridge is about 3 meters above the river and I could not figure out what would cause this.
I walked down the western side of the river to an open area. It is apparent that the site is used for camping. Within a few minutes I heard the sound of an ATV approaching through the woods. It was during my conversation with the owner that the mystery was revealed. Last Decembers heavy rains produced flash floods in Charlotte County causing millions of dollars in damage. The debris was left in the bridge after the water levels receded.
He showed me a sluiceway that was constructed by DOT to channel water away from the bridge in case of future storms. After he left, I photographed the waterfall for about 20 or minutes.
