Finding the Trailhead: On the Cabot Trail northeast of Baddeck, drive to North River Bridge. On the east side of the bridge across the North River, turn onto Oregon Road and drive to the end where you will see the entrance to the North River Falls Provincial Park and the trailhead. Park here. The trailhead is on the left side (south side) of the parking lot.

The Hike: From where you park look for the trail on the left (south) of the parking lot. The trail begins with a gentle descent to the river and then follows the river for a few hundred metres. The trail has had some washouts closer to the waterfalls but is still easily traversable. Keep an eye on the trail as it can be easy to miss, especially on your way out.
