Summary: A pretty waterfall, but you will have to travel on a rough road to get to it. Batchawana Falls makes for a nice small side adventure on your way to Lake Superior Provincial Park or on a Lake Superior Tour .

Batchawana Falls are just south of Batchawana Bay Provincial Park. The falls are off of Tribag Mine Road, a logging road off of Hwy 17. If you are heading north on 17, take a right onto Tribag. The falls are 7 kilometers (4.2 miles) away from 17. Tribag is a rough one lane road, and it is being actively used by logging trucks, so be careful. The falls are located below a bend in the road. The falls are not really visible from the road. The road curves to the right, and there is a rock wall to the left, over which a small creek flows. There is not much room to park. There are signs indicating how many kilometers from Hwy 17 you are. If you see the 8 kilometer sign, you have gone too far.

You can climb down into the gorge. Getting down to the river is tricky, but doable. There are apparently other waterfalls further upstream.
