Begin this trail at the 25m (82ft) high and 38m (125ft) wide Magpie High Falls. Cross the wooden bridge and walk along the Magpie River gorge and then up to a ridge beside the river valley. Continue through the forest to a bluff overlooking the valley gorge and then up and down hills at the base of Legarde Mountain. The Magpie River ends at a three-part falls known as Mission Falls. You’ll see the upper falls first, as it drops 8m (25ft). Cross the road to follow a trail to the middle falls, also known as Silver Falls. They drop 5m (15ft). You’ll have to bypass the trail to see the lower falls, which drop 6m (20ft) just a bit farther along the river.
