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 Duquette 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.
