Falls Detail: Located in CFB Gagetown, Lindsay Falls are approximately 200 meters from the Lindsay Valley Cross Country Ski Lodge. Although named Lindsay Falls they are not found on Lindsay Brook, nor are they on Falls Brook. The falls are located on a third brook that is not identified on the map but joins Lindsay Brook just above the small bridge spanning the brook.
This brook plunges over an abrupt escarpment running east to west and are located in a small ravine cutting through a ridge. The main ski trail runs parallel to the brook. Large pine, spruce and cedar trees make the area damp and dark, cover the small ravine containing the falls. This coverage also provides an ion rich environment, fostering quick decay of the many falling trees in this mature woodlot.
Visit Detail: My sister, Glenda and I walked down the hill from the Lindsay Valley Cross Country Ski Lodge across Lindsay Brook and followed the main trail up to the right with the stream on our right shoulder. Jason Bennett, a waterfalls enthusiast, informed me that there was a falls located near the ski lodge, so I decided to drive down from Fredericton to photograph the falls. The brook has overrun its banks due to several days of heavy rainfall and I suspected the falls would be thunderous. We could hear the falls well before seeing them.
After spending a few minutes looking at the falls from the lookout we made our way gingerly down to the bottom of the ravine to photograph the falls. From here we climbed back to the top and then followed the ski trail up to the top of the ridge and then crossed over the bridge 100 meters above the falls. From here we made our way down along the west side of the brook to a point below the falls where I used an existing rope to rappel down to the brook.
Considering the terrain I was surprised that the falls would be 5 meters.
