Moose River Falls, West Branch
Follow Hwy 102 from Halifax to Truro, exiting left (exit #15) onto Hwy 104 towards New Brunswick. Exit right onto Glenholme Loop, then turn right onto old highway. Follow a short distance and exit left on Hwy 2 towards Parrsboro. Follow road to the community of Moose River, exiting right onto dirt road just past Moose River bridge (at sharp right bend in road). Follow the main dirt road for roughly 2 kilometres; look for possible flagging tape on tree, at left side of road.
Follow possible flagging tape down mountainside, angling down to the right, on the remains of an old logging road. This route will lead to the river, just downstream from the site of an old logging dam. Cross the river below the dam and follow the right bank downstream until you see the remnants of an old log driving dam. From here go right into woods, following the old dam spillway; then straight down slope to base of waterfall.
