Duchesnay Falls is located just west of North Bay along Hwy 17 on Duchesnay Creek. Like many of the waterfalls on the Canadian Shield, this is a long cascade consisting of many drops and several twists and turns. The two largest drops are each around 15 feet high. In high water the falls forms two main channels. You can explore every inch of this waterfall by walking and climbing along the rocks.
This is a loop trail taking you along both sides of the creek, with a bridge crossing.
