Considered one of Grey County's best-kept secrets, Hoggs Falls are tucked away a mere two-minute walk from the Lower Valley Road near Flesherton. Named for William Hogg, the waters of the Boyne River tumble seven metres in this woodland setting.
Almost inside a city, Indian Falls are in Sarawak Township, at the northwestern
edge of Owen Sound. A one-kilometre walk through Indian Falls Conservation
Area leads through ferns, trees and wildflowers. The horseshoe-shaped
falls drop to a quiet pool before Indian Creek flows on to empty into
Like many falls in one, the Sydenham River cascades over limestone shelves
of an 18-metre cliff that is part of the Niagara Escarpment in the southeastern
part of Owen Sound. Viewed from any angle, Inglis Falls give a panorama
of rock and water that is truly spectacular in any season. Remnants of
a nineteenth-century grist mill are reminders of the power in this falling
water, as used by Peter Inglis. Within the Inglis Falls Conservation Area
are picnic facilities, washrooms, and a seasonal gift shop, all reached
from Highways 6 & 10.
Seen from the Bruce Trail, or glimpsed from Highway 21 heading west from Owen Sound, Jones Falls cascade 12 metres over the Niagara Escarpment. A one-kilometre walking trail leads through the Pottawatomi Conservation Area to the falls. This is another spot that offers year-round splendour for photographers.
Within the Durham Conservation Area, McGowan Falls take the name of an early miller who used the water power of the Saugeen River at this site. Popular with anglers, the falls here are more gradual than some, yet scenic in their setting of cedars. McGowan Falls are portrayed in one of several murals that adorn buildings in downtown Durham.
