Uisge Ban Falls, Baddeck

4.6
The white, rushing waters of Uisge Ban Falls attract hikers to bask in the tranquil wooded environment. The approximately 3 km (1.8 mi) trail takes you through a hardwood forest, which consists mainly of birch, beech, and maple, and leads you to the deep stream valley where the river eventually plunges a total of 16 m (50 ft) between a towering granite gorge. It takes about an hour to course through the trail. The surrounding park has picnic facilities, so pack some snacks to refuel. Due to frequent rain and snow in the region, the trail can sometimes become muddy or even inaccessible.
