    Walters Falls is located on the Big Head River in the village of Walters Falls. The falls are located next to the beautiful Falls Inn. There are remnants of an old mill at the top and there is a small bridge near the top where you can cross over the river and view the falls from a different perspective. The falls have been estimated to be about 14 m in height. Access is very easy, the parking is almost right next to the falls.

    Known as “the best waterfalls in the area” is the most visited, anytime of year!   One of three waterfalls that surround the City of Owen Sound, Inglis Falls is the best known and most visited. Situated in the heart of the 200-hectare Inglis Falls Conservation Area, Inglis Falls is an 18 metre high cascade, created by the Sydenham River meeting the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. The erosive power of the water has carved a deep gorge at the base of the falls. On a clear day you can see down the valley into the City of Owen Sound and out to the Owen Sound harbour.

    There is something for everybody; a viewing platform for those unable to see over the stone wall, 7.42 km of trails of various difficulty, access to the Bruce Trail, more than 20 species of ferns, bird watching opportunities, a series of geological potholes, historical remains of a grist mill, washrooms, picnic facilities and visitor information centre.
