From the Park gate travel 1.3 km to the first road on your left. Turn left on this road towards the Armstrong Brook campground. You will immediately cross a small bridge over a brook. Follow this road for 5 km to the Trail head. The trail head is on the right. You will pass the entrance to the Armstrong Brook campground about half way. For directions to the park go to Mount Carleton Park.

Trail Description

The Williams Falls Trail is a short, wheelchair accessible trail that ends at a bridge that crosses Williams Brook just above the 3 meter high falls. The trail then continues around to a small lookout platform below that looks directly back at the falls. Other points of interest along the trail include a large White Pine tree, and a spruce tree growing on top of a large rock and enveloping the rock with its roots. My favorite part of the trail is the straight flat rock formations that run parallel to the falls just below the viewing platform. They cause the stream to swirl around as it finds its way past these rock walls.
