Summary: If you are driving to or from Lake Superior Provincial Park, perhaps while circling Lake Superior , stop and take a half hour break here. This will hopefully not be the highlight of the trip, but the falls are interesting and easy to get to.

The Chippewa Falls are right along Highway 17, about 30 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie and 90 miles south of Wawa. There is a roadside park. The falls are visible from the road. This is a complicated falls consisting of several drops. You can walk up either side of the falls, and climb on the rocks. This is also the midpoint of the Trans-Canada highway.

You can see what Chippewa Falls looks like from above courtesy of Google Maps.
