Small Falls near Altona Ontario

Small Falls near Altona

A surprising find in the relatively flat area of North Pickering was this beautiful waterfall. It is the remnant  of an old mill pond on Duffins Creek. The pond has become a meadow and Duffins Creek flows through it to exit at this waterfall. Due to its ease of access, I have gone here on many occasions and seasons. Unfortunately, this little gem sits inside the boundaries of the proposed Pickering Airport. I’m really hoping that project does not proceed because of it’s ecological sensitivity. I have hiked the many tributaries of Duffins Creek and can’t imaging this beautiful environment being used as an airport.
