Episode 12: Beat the Heat with Top 10 Swimming Waterfalls in New Brunswick



Store Lower St. John River


Follow the guardrail towards the river and go down the hill next to the bridge. Just before you reach the river turn right and enter the woods. There are signs of an old road that follows along the river at the top of hill but is sometimes hard to follow. Just follow the river until you reach the waterfall at 600 meters. The powerlines cross the river just above the first falls.

A larger, more impressive waterfall can be found at about 300 meters above the powelines.
