Hike to Haunted Falls & Black Hole Falls

Rate this Adventure Old Baxter Mill Rd. Pull-Off

Two waterfalls, one river in Canning, Nova Scotia.

This isn't much of trail so be prepared to bushwhack. If you pull over at the end of Old Baxters Harbour Road, you'll see a sign and a map outline of the trails. You just have to follow the stream, go right you get to Black Hole Falls, and go left you get to Haunted Falls and the shore.

To get to Haunted Falls, there is a small rock climb. The ropes are already there and are secure but you can always bring your own ropes just in case. If the tide is out you can walk through the cove and get to the shore.

Black Hole falls has a great little area you could hop in to cool off if the rain has been heavy prior.
