Waterfall Hike October 16th, 2010

By Kim Sayers

We were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day for the waterfall hike in Grey county. The hike started at Inglis Falls where we went down to have a look at the falls from both sides of the river. Inglis falls is a cascade type of fall which means it hits rocks at several places in its fall. The remains of the mills built in the area are seen in several places. Our second waterfall was Keefer Falls east of Owen Sound, it is a plunge type of water fall which does not hit rocks as the water falls. It has a pleasant walk through a deciduous forest and a meadow. We enjoyed the colourful fall leaves and the milkweed seeds. The last stop was Harrison Park in Owen Sound where we walked up to Weaver Falls. A pretty walk past a babbling brook and past several massive beech, hemlock, birch and maple trees. Weaver falls has both a cascade section and a plunge section. We ended the day at a restaurant in Owen Sound and promises of a repeat of the waterfall trip in the spring.
