Inglis Falls

Created by the Sydenham River is the most renowned and the most visited waterfall located within the Grey Sauble Conservation Area. The 18 metre high cascades were named after the successes of Peter Ignis’ various mills. Today, all that remains of the earlier industrial scene are the family home, the silent millstones and a stone building.

 

The enduring beauty of Inglis Falls, just south of Owen Sound, is a must-see attraction any time of the year. Popular photographs of the falls are taken during the winter months, capturing the beautiful frozen cascades. On a clear day, one can gaze down the valley into the city of Owen Sound and out into the harbour. The site itself appeal to various individuals’ interests: plenty of bird watching opportunities, series of geological potholes, historical remains of a grist mill, picnic facilities and a visitor information centre.

 

The trail which leads to Harrison Park from Inglis Falls is steep with rocky terrain, and is to be used with caution. Other activities include: fishing, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

 

A parking fee does apply.
