Gaelic for “white water”, Uisge Ban (ish-ka-ban) Falls has a four kilometre (2.4 mile) trail which passes through a hardwood forest comprised largely of maple, birch and beech woods; and leads to the 16 metre (50 foot) high waterfall. The Falls Trail is approximately three kilometres (1.8 miles) in length and requires about one hour to complete. The trail passes through a field then follows Falls Brook upstream through a mixed forest and then a hardwood forest. The deep stream valley narrows dramatically in the vicinity of Uisge Ban Falls. At the falls, the sheer walls of the gorge tower 150 metres (500 feet) on either side.

The Uisge Ban Falls Park features picnic facilities and a hiking trail to the impressive 16-m (52-ft.) high Uisge Ban Waterfall.
