About 10-12 metres in height, this waterfall is one of those rare falls that you can walk behind. On warm days you’ll find a few swimmers enjoying the pool at the bottom of the falls – perfect refreshment on a summer’s day!

    INGLIS FALLS CONSERVATION AREA

    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.
