The Best Waterfalls To Visit Near Sudbury

 

 

Waterfalls are some of nature’s most serene and relaxing wonders. They are beautiful to look at and even experience by immersing yourself in the cool and refreshing water! There are many waterfalls that are located around the Sudbury region and we’ve got your covered on the best ones to visit during summer break!

 

Onaping Falls

Onaping Falls is located about 35 km west of Sudbury and is considered one of the best waterfalls in all of Ontario. The Onaping River drops over 150 feet, the largest of which is a 30 foot final drop. A trail climbs up across the rock alongside the falls allowing the ability to view different parts of the falls. There are also some impressive rock formations to look at by the falls.

 

Paradise Lagoon

Paradise Lagoon located in the Greater Sudbury Region is a considered a secret “swimming hole” that sports a beautiful waterfall! Most canoeists who pass along the Chiniguchi River that’s located close to Paradise Lagoon don’t even know the lagoon exists, as it lies off the portage and across from the main course of the river and associated waterfall. Getting to these falls is quite a trek as it can only be accessed by canoeing, so these falls are definitely meant to be visited by the explorer at heart!

 

Larchwood Cascade

If you’re looking to hit 2 waterfalls in a day, after your visit to Onaping Falls, we suggest stopping by Larchwood Cascade! There are many small falls that can be explored within narrow rock channels. Parking is located on Mooney Rd., south of the river.

 

After exploring some of Sudbury’s most treasured waterfalls, the Quality Inn Sudbury is here to help you get settled in after your long day out with clean and comfortable accommodations. Book your stay with us by connecting with our front desk at 705-675-1273.
