Easy walk to a very sweet waterfall with a deep pool. Can also paddle from the falls down to the road. Is basically a very rocky grade 2 creek, with some technical grade 3 bits, takes about 30 min.

I would like to add to the comment that the section upstream is very pretty g3 creeking with a g5+ gorge (portaged) just before the falls. And also another 2k of g2 after the falls to the c171 road, which is where the gauge is.

Comments: Can verify the Arm falls write up. There is a very fun & committing looking gorge upstream that probably warrants attention, and a gauge exists at the weir above the road bridge, 2km below the falls. 0.95m was ideal.
