Waterfalls of New Brunswick: Second Falls

New Bbrunswick Waterfall Detail: In 1876, Daniel Gillmor built a watermill at Second Falls on the Magaguadavic River. Successive generations maintained mills on both sides of the river and as well other families established mills in the same area. The mighty river was used to drive timber to a common boom just above Second Falls Bridge, where the logs were separated according to individual markings. Over time the timber industry changed and the need for these mills diminished and all that remains is the most  beautiful waterfall in Canada.

Perch Falls, the most beautiful Waterfalls in Canada

Accordin to the information we gathered about the waterfalls in Canada, with its beginnings in Perch Lake the diminutive brook flows through a narrow dale along the nape of Marshall Mountain, eventually empting into Musquash Estuary. A few kilometers up from the confluence with the Musquash, the brook cuts through a gap in the bedrock. It’s a pristine picture of the beauty of nature, something that can only be seen in movies or games. If you are a fan of games, however, you would want the hear about the newest no deposit bonuses and offers that you can use at any time to have a more fluid casino game experience.The igneous bedrock forms a ridge that is the division between the plateau and the estuary. Driving west along Route 1 just past Prince of Wales there is a notable drop from the plateau down into the broad estuary.

Nature Moncton: A Hike to Memel Falls

Memel Falls

“We are used to this”, was the collective reply when I asked the small and enthusiastic group of Nature Moncton members if they wanted to hike to Memel Falls in the pouring rain.

This trip was one of my most exciting experiences, not just because of the hike and waterfalls, but also because I won a large sum of money on mobile slot games that I enjoy playing on hike breaks. I played my usual small stakes slots for fun by taking advantage of the $80 free no deposit bonus when I suddenly saw the three jackpot symbols, which meant that I won $3600. It goes without saying that we had a huge party that night. But let’s start from the beginning.

I was invited down by the club to give a photo presentation of my Waterfalls of New Brunswick books. I eagerly accepted the opportunity and so I was on the road at 7:30 AM, listening to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. My first challenge was to find the Tankville School. The greater challenge will be leading a group of naturalist to the waterfall and back without issue. I know these folks are seasoned outdoor people, but there are many issues that can arise.

Upper Prescott Brook Waterfalls in New Brunswick

Following the Napoleonic Wars in Europe from 1803 to 1815, Britain was cut off from its timber supply in Eastern Europe. Unable to rely on traditional sources, Britain quickly turned to its North American colony as a new source. Albert, part of New Brunswick counties in particular was well suited to meet this demand, thanks to the geography of the area. With its large tracts of virgin timber, located on steep hills surrounded by river valleys which empty out into the Bay was an ideal location to harvest timber. Spruce and Tamarack were two of the species cut down and sent to the mills but White Pine was especially valuable since it was used to make the masts of wooden ships. All settlers of the area had been forbidden in their land deeds to cut white pine on their lands. All of the white pine in the province was reserved for the King and his Royal Navy. By the 1820’s a number of rivers had been dammed and water wheels built to power sawmills. Timber from these mills could be utilized to build wooden ships by local shipbuilding companies or transported by sailing vessels to other markets. Demand for timber grew to the point that the 1851 census for Albert County recorded 97 sawmills operating in the New Brunswick counties.


Tetagouche Falls

Waterfalls Details: The Bathurst Harbour has several rivers that flow into it. The second largest behind the Nepisiguit is the Tetagouche River. The river has its head waters in the Tetagouche lake area which are nestled in the upland mountains in North New Brunswick.


Tetagouche Falls is several kilometers northwest of Bathurst, on route 180. Route 180 is the road out to the Bathurst Airport. It is an accessible area where the beauty and power of the falls excite visitors while continuing to attract local people from the greater Bathurst region. The falls can be viewed from a lookout area above the falls. The best vantage point is at the bottom of the gorge. To view the falls from the river simply follow the well marked trail heading down stream. The trail will begin to descend and it is very steep, but it leads to the area that offers a great view of the falls. There are remnants of an old dam where the water falls over the rocks but has since been washed away or taken down. The falls are not high but the high canyon walls surrounding the falls provide a natural backdrop.

Visit Details: I visited the Tetagouche Falls in the spring of 2007. The volume of water flowing through the notch in the gorge was tremendous. I was not impressed by the view of the falls from the lookout because I was limited to looking straight down at the falls. I decided to follow the trail to the base. The well marked trail was very easy to find and I had to climb over a few blow downs from winter storms. I was angrily greeted by a raccoon that scurried up a large spruce. The trail down to the river is very steep and I would dread the hike back to the lookout area. Because of the amount of water, I was limited to how close I could encroach on the falls. At 30 meters down river the mist from the falls could still be felt.


I stayed several minutes to enjoy the power of the falls and the beautiful day. The hike backup the trail was effortless due to my renewed energy level by this wonderful waterfall.
