28 Nova Scotia Waterfalls For Your Bucket List

22 comments

Looking for waterfalls to explore? You are in the right place! Here are 28 Nova Scotia waterfalls for your next adventure.

Nova Scotia waterfalls

Waterfalls are abundant here in Nova Scotia. Exploring them will take you from one end of the province to the other. So no matter where you are, there's probably one nearby.

Many require a hike through wooded areas, so make sure to wear appropriate footwear.

The waterfalls in Nova Scotia are hidden gems, tucked away off the beaten path. Don't forget to pack some snacks (and maybe take your bathroom break) before heading out.


28 Nova Scotia Waterfalls

There are thousands of waterfalls in Nova Scotia, but many of them are on private property or are inaccessible. So we din't include those.

Some that are on private property are accessible with permission and we've included them. Please ask before entering private property. Sadly some people have abused private property and the land owners have denied access all together.

This page is a work in progress. If you know of a waterfall, that's not on private property and is accessible, please tell us about it and we'll try to include it.

The waterfalls in this article are organised by region:

At the beginning of each region, you'll find a list of waterfalls in that area, followed by specific information about each one.

If your favourite waterfall is not on this page, please tell us about it in the comments and we'll try to add it.

1) Indian Falls

Indian Falls is on the Lahave River, in Newburne, Lunenburg County. These falls are easy to locate because it is part of a Municipal Park.

Update (March 3, 2017): Are Indian Falls really on the Lahave River? A reader commented that Indian Falls isn't even near the Lahave River. Well, it's true that it is far from the well-known section of Lahave River that runs through Bridgewater. But as it turns out, Lahave River is pretty long – 97 km (60 mi) to be exact. And it has 2 branches (one that runs through New Germany and another that travels south from Sherbrooke Lake. Indian Falls is on this section (crossing through Newburne) and is known as North Branch Lahave River. The two branches join at Wentzells Lake (along Hwy #10) and then heads towards Bridgewater.

Just north of Indian Falls is the Lahave River Campground, located in Newburne.

    I wasssss going to comment that you missed an entire section of the province (Antigonish-Pictou Highlands/Northumberland Lowlands), but on second thought I’d rather keep our hidden gems just that. Great place to explore though, we have many falls that rival the entries on this list!

    • Dena Haines Mar 2, 2017, 4:50 pm

      Hi Erik,

      Don’t worry, your secret is safe with me. 🙂 This bucket list is a work in progress, we’ll add to it as we explore. If you had to choose one, which would be your favorite in your part of the province?

      Thanks for your comment!

    • Heather Cunningham Apr 18, 2017, 7:00 pm

      My thoughts exactly about Pictou County area falls. We like to keep them secret. But we do have some that certainly outdo many of the falls I’ve seen here. Just don’t want access traffic on our dirt roaded areas I guess.

  • Zeb Landon Mar 2, 2017, 9:24 pm

    Beautiful falls. Keep it that way!

  • Emily Mar 2, 2017, 10:47 pm

    Delap’s Cove Falls is in Annapolis County, not Digby County.

    • Bryan Haines Mar 3, 2017, 8:20 am

      Thanks Emily – just fixed it. The map is pretty clear, isn’t it?

  • Rachel Mar 3, 2017, 11:13 am

    You left out Park Falls in Pictou County

  • Heather Colls Mar 3, 2017, 12:04 pm

    Indian Falls is not even near LaHave River and LaHave river is not near Lunenburg. Lunenburg is driving distance is over 30 minutes. Better look at your map for how you give directions. I use to live on the LaHave River so looked at this one and realized how your directions were so off.

    • Bryan Haines Mar 3, 2017, 1:10 pm

      Hi Heather, thanks for your comment.

      I agree that we could have been clearer – the falls aren’t in Lunenburg but Lunenburg County. I’ve fixed the post to reflect that.

      Your comment about the Lahave River made us go back and double check our facts. And it’s true that Indian Falls are far from the well-known section of Lahave River that runs through Bridgewater. But as it turns out, Lahave River is pretty long – 97 km to be exact. And it has 2 branches (one that runs through New Germany and another that travels south from Sherbrooke Lake. Indian Falls is on this section (crossing through Newburne) and is known as North Branch Lahave River. The two branches join at Wentzells Lake (along Hwy #10) and then heads towards Bridgewater.

      Just north of Indian Falls is the Lahave River Campground, located in Newburne.

      Thanks for helping to keep our site clear and accurate.

  • bob Mar 4, 2017, 6:21 pm

    i have seen many falls in pictou and antigonish countys that are as high or higher then these shown. all of these others are pretty but i one is at least 70 feet high

    • Heather Cunningham Apr 18, 2017, 7:02 pm

      Hi Bob. Is one of the falls, Black Brook falls, by any chance. She’s a beaut.

  • Liann Rankin-Gillis Mar 7, 2017, 7:10 am

    The very first picture you show is Piper’s Glen Falls in Upper Margaree near Scotsville in Cape Breton. Why did you use the picture if you didn’t bother to mention it??

    • Jody Way Apr 29, 2017, 7:19 pm

      We call them Egypt Falls – it’s a treacherous hike & possibly on private property… Gorgeous falls though!! 🙂

    There is a beautiful fall out by Baxters Harbour not on this list, possibly the best one in Annapolis Valley.

      Do you know the name of the falls? Is it near Baxters Harbour? We’ve covered Baxters Harbour Falls in this list and in this post.

      Let me know – I would love to add it.

      Thanks Keevan!

    Thank you for this interesting collection.

    A correction is necessary: Uisage Ban Falls, near Baddeck, is in Victoria County, not Inverness County.

    Regards

      Thanks for the correction Blaise – just updated the article.

    I believe your beautiful cover photo for the article is Egypt Falls in Cape Breton which isn’t in your list.

    I was surprised to see you didn’t include Egypt Falls in Cape Breton. Especially when the very first picture on this site looks very similar to Egypt Falls. Might be something you’d like to check out and include.
