Raleigh Falls III
Probably one of the most readily accessible but least visited falls along the Trans Canada Highway, Raleigh Falls is located approximately 20 km. west of Ignace, ON.
Wabigoon River rapids in the autumn. The reduced water flow in the fall exposes the smaller rocks in the middle of the stream.
After a rainy summer, Raleigh Falls are running full bore.
In the spring, the water runs high and fast. These rocks are completely submerged. Now, in late autumn, they are exposed for all to see.
Wabigoon Lake exits through a set of rapids forming a river below.

Around the Bend
In the spring, when the ice and snow thaw, Thunder Creek is too narrow. The excess water overflows the bank and joins the main stream below.
Raleigh Falls exit into these rapids which tumble down to the wetlands below.
