Update April 15, 2018 - The Bridge over South Branch Oromocto River (just before the trail) is washed out and not passable. If anyone knows if the falls can be accessed from Route 785 let me know.
Note: The road has washed out significantly over the last few years. You may not be able to get to the second bridge without a 4x4. Don't damage your vehicle trying to get there. Other options are to visit South Branch Oromocto Falls on the Kirkpatrick Family Trail. This trail is on the same access road nearer the pavement. You could also choose to walk on the road. The distance is roughly an additinoal kilometer from the first bridge or 2 kilometers from the pavement.
On Route 101 about half way between Fredericton Junction and Welsford you will find Meadow Brook Road (on your right if coming from Fredericton Junction). Follow this road for 7.3 km and it will turn to gravel. Travel for 700 m and you cross a small bridge. After this point you may need a vehicle with some clearance. I made it in my Honda Civic in 2013 but the road was not well maintained. Just after the bridge turn right onto another gravel road. After another km you will cross another small bridge.
After the second bridge you will find a small parking area on your right. This is for an ATV Trail but it is possible to park here and walk up the stream to the falls. Within sight of the first parking area there is another small clearing. From either parking area find the stream and walk up the stream to the falls. There are small pieces of trail that follow the stream on either side but they are intermittent.
If you continue on for another km past the bridge (passing a sharp turn to the right then back to the left) you will come to the sign that mark's the trail head.
Description coming soon.
