There are many waterfalls within a short drive of Owen Sound.
Inglis Falls is the best-known and most visited waterfall in the area! The 18-metre cascade is created by the Sydenham River meeting the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. The extreme power of the water has gorged out a base in the falls and created this magnificent waterfall.
On a nice clear day, you can look down the valley and see Owen Sound and out to the Owen Sound Harbour.
Inglis Falls is located in the heart of the 200 hectares of Inglis Falls Conservation Area. Hiking trails, lookout towers and museums are situated around Inglis Falls for the whole family to enjoy.
