 Overview
 Description
After hopping a waist-high barrier you walk down some stairs - watch your step, some board are soft and mushy.

At the bottom, looking to your 11 o'clock across the water you see an old building and a sign that says "Ottawa Hydro Electric Comission, No. 2 Generating Station." This building appears well maintained but I'm not sure what it's current use is.

To your right is the interesting stuff. On the outside you can see several pipes and all kinds of unidentifiable machinery. You'll also see a spiral staircase. From here you have a couple options:

1) If you look left and down, there is a small space that traverses back towards the way you came down. Hopping down inside you can see some old gears and chains that ran some sort of... dunno. Cool looking though. The passage travels about a dozen feet and then turns 90 degrees to the right. Someone brave enough could get down on all fours and see just how far it goes, and what's inside.

2) Directly under the spiral staircase mentioned earlier there is an iron door (sitting open). Inside is a couple of large rooms and tons of machinery, including some massive gears, ancient wooden beams, large fans, etc. See the photos. This is also where a few homeless people clearly live from time to time - there is junk all over the floor, and a mattress in the corner.

3) If you climb the spiral staircase itself you get back up to ground level, and through a chain fence you can see what appears to be old rescued machinery from the pulp mill that has been left up here on display. Not as interesting when it's taken out of its original setting, but still nice to see.

     History
    "A visit here is a worthwhile detour but it is difficult to get to without making a specific tour. Basically you go to visit "The Mill" Restaurant, but rather than visiting the restaurant, you park there and look at the remains of the old Bronson pulp mill. There are some stairs down to the water, great stone arches and remains, ruins, remains of sluices, great iron mill wheels and pipes and cranks, the sound of running water all over the place. "
