Hike up the Carp River to the 15 ft falls.  On Google Earth and other maps this river is named the Lamond River but locals call it the Carp River.  You can walk right up the river in water shoes if the water is low or you can take the trail to the falls during seasons when the water is higher.

From the James St swing bridge turn left and drive east on City Road.  Turn right onto Mission Rd.  At the turn off to the Mt McKay lookout stay left and you will now be on Squaw Bay Road.  Follow Squaw Bay road to the Y at the waterfront.  Turn right here onto Brule Road.  Drive straight past the turnoff to the treatment center parking lot and continue along Carp River Road, shown as Squaw Bay Road on the Google map.

You need a 4×4 to get to the parking spot located a few kilometers down Carp River Road.  You might want to park in the parking areas near the start of the road if you do not have a 4×4 vehicle as there are not many places to turn around along the road.  You could start your hike here adding about 5.5km to the hike or possibly bike to the start of the trail at the river.
