Gertrud Falls to Maid Marion Falls
It is a short paddle to the Maid Marion Falls (Kilometre 25 on the map above), with a bit of lining past various rapids. Here the water disappears down a slot as well, but there is no mistaking what is behind it as the thunder can be heard far off..
The flow continues via a canal before dropping into the void.

I then spent the remainder of the morning climbing around the falls.

The next stage was the 17-kilometre portage route around the Maid Marion Falls gorge.
