Have taken my son and dog here many times over the years to hike, climb, picnic, or puddle around in the water. Will be back for sure. Love it.

Great spot for a short walk or a medium hike. Park on the highway & it is only a 2 min walk to falls or park at the information center & choose from several hikes to falls or Bruce Trail

Beautiful day with easy walk to falls up top. Steep climb down to the falls but safe and worth the effort. We will be back to visit again at different seasons.

This short hike to the falls from hwy 10 existing Owen Sound is almost like a roadside serendipity for me. Daily I find just a few minutes here restores my inner calmness.

Interesting little falls especially in the spring when the ice ice just melting. No real parking but nobody minds you parking on the road side. Its only a ten minute trek back to the falls from your car

This place is hidden away, even though its just at the corner of Highway 6 and 21. Not well maintained. Inglis waterfalls are far better.

Access the trail to these falls behind the Visitor Information Centre at Rockford. Trail is quite an easy walk, and once you get to the falls, there are some wonderful vantage sights you can access with a little effort.

It is only a short trail from the parking lot at the tourist information centre. After crossing the arching steel bridge you are walking along the rushing water before it drops as the waterfall. It is a little bit risky especially after rainfall because you...More
