Found at the west side of Ferris Provincial Park
Ranney Falls is a wide plunge waterfall found just south of Campbellford. Access is from the Ferris Provincial Park. The falls spans the entire width of the Trent River, perhaps 50-60 m. The crest forms a downstream pointing V-shape. The falls is perhaps 4 m high. The view of the river valley from the Park is impressive. A new high suspension footbridge crosses the Ranney gorge just downstream from the falls. Upstream at Trent Drive there is a low, stony spillway beneath a dam.
In the summer you can swim in the Falls and even enter down into the gorge, walk under the cliffs into tiny caves and explore around the Trent River.
