The Carrow Falls Trail is a short trail to a beautiful little waterfall that only flows when it rains. The trail starts by crossing a nice, new walking bridge. It then following the stream down through the woods on the left. The trail splits. We went left and crossed back over the stream on a small wooden bridge. To the right is the other side of a loop. The trail continues to follow the stream down through the woods until it comes to Carrow Falls. Carrow Falls is a 5 metre (15 foot) high water falls that flows over a slanted rock face and into a small pond. We visited in November, and it was flowing nicely.

After taking lots of pictures of the falls, we continued on the trail down along the stream. We came to a rope that helped us get down to the stream. The trail crossed the stream. We couldn't find a way to cross without getting our feet wet, so we decided to turn around. The description on the Oromocto Watershed webpage says that there is another falls down below. We will have to go back and explore in the summer when we don't mind getting our feet wet.

Make sure you stop and visit the Smythe covered bridge on your way by. It is a beautiful bridge on a beautiful stretch of the South Oromocto River.
