Featured Hike: Inglis Falls

Posted on July 31, 2008

Feature: Inglis Falls

Directions and Parking: Travel north on Highway 10 toward Owen Sound. Turn west onto Derry Line at Rockford and then right onto Inglis Falls Road. Parking at Inglis Falls Conservation Area.

Hike Directions: At Inglis Falls the Trail takes you across Sydenham River via a bridge over the Falls. Inglis Falls is an 18 metre high cascade, created by the Sydenham River meeting the edge of the Escarpment. The erosive power of the water has carved a deep gorge at the base of the falls. The Trail continues alongside a stone wall, offering an excellent view of the Falls. A beautiful loop involves following the Trail north to Grey Road 5 and turning east (right) to follow the Harrison Park Side Trail into the Park. Cross the old road bridge across the Sydenham River and turn right to follow the well marked path back to the Bruce Trail above the falls.

Length: Less than 100 metres to the Falls. The Harrison Park loop will take about 2 hours and is about 5 km long.
