Summary: Upper Rosseau Falls is a medium sized roadside falls in Muskoka District. It is very easy to visit, and close to many other waterfalls. It may get a bit thin in the summer.

Upper Rosseau Falls is located on Highway 141 about 7 km east of Rosseau. This is much steeper than the lower falls, but not as interesting in my opinion. The falls is on the south side of the highway. There is a small roadside park on the north side. The park consists of little more than a parking area. You can see the top of the falls from the road, and a rapids above the falls.

At on time you could follow a trail down to the base of the falls, but last time I was there it was posted. Now if you want to get a full view of the falls you will need a canoe.
