The 25-foot high Chippewa Falls are right along Highway 17, about 30 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie and about 90 miles south of Wawa. This is a complicated falls consisting of several drops. The Chippewa Falls are wide and cascading.  The falls can be safely viewed from the bridge and there is a roadside park and a trail alongside the falls.

The two RV Gypsies went into the parking lot, then up the trail beside the Chippewa Falls. They were able to get a few photos looking down onto Chippewa Falls before the mosquitos started biting them.

Although trying to get out of the wooded area and away from the mosquitos, Karen quickly snapped a picture of a tree with a giant hole in it, most likely made by a woodpecker.

In the parking lot next to Chippewa Falls, there was a plaque that marks the half-way point of the Trans-Canada Highway.   The plaque describes Dr. Perry E. Doolittle, who is considered “Father of the Trans-Canada Highway” and was said to be the first man in Canada to own a car.
