This waterfall is off the Empie Road, just west of the hamlet of Three
Mile Bay. A short distance up this road, there is
a site on the right where the remains of a bridge is in
view. The falls can be seen from here.

|Length of hike:
This area is all private property, but the falls can be seen
from the roadside by this former bridge foundation. The
larger drops are downstream so you are looking over the crest.
Our pics of that were taken with a drone.
This is a small multi-step waterfall. From the bridge
looking upstream, four small ledge drops are in view. The
top three are each about a foot high and the final drop is about
On the downstream side, there are five additional drops.
This side also totals about six feet. As the photos show,
this is not a step type falls in the sense that you are walking
up stairs. Rather, the drops descend over a series of
ledges in the rock forming the river bed.
Shaver Creek flows into Three Mile Bay about a thousand yards from this
waterfall. This is a bay off Chaumont Bay, a large
bay on Lake Ontario.
