North River Falls
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 Five Islands, exiting right onto dirt road just past North River bridge. Follow the dirt road to a sharp left bend, then exit left onto old logging track at next sharp right bend.
Follow old logging road down small hill and to the right, through a flat area, until you can hear the falls on your left. Look for a small trail on the left, leading down steep hill to the base of the falls. The last part of the trail descends steeply on a loose bank to the falls (use the ropes to help with the descent). Extreme care should be used on this part of the trail.
