Inglis Falls

Hi friends, I thought I would introduce you to Inglis Falls in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada.  It's so nice to have such beautiful falls within about 20 minutes from home.  This is definitely a tourist attraction for the area.  The changing of the seasons adds to the beauty of the falls, to me the most beautiful times to visit are Autumn and Winter when the snow is still on the ground.


This is the view from the top of the falls.  In the Autumn it is exceptionally beautiful as all of these trees are in beautiful shades of red, yellow, orange, etc.



This view is looking down from the bridge that leads you to the old grist mill, the water is just churning.  It is right before it goes over the falls.


This photo is above the falls looking in the other direction.


The grist mill.



There are lots of hiking trails past the grist mill.




One of the millstones.  These are quite large.


There is the boardwalk that leads you down to the base of the falls.  There are a few viewing points along the way.


Looking toward the top of the falls.  The current is quite strong today.




This is one of the viewing points going down the boardwalk.  You can see the grist mill at the top of the falls.


Here you can see the river below.




The trees and bushes are covered with frozen mist from the falls.  There was a lot of mist today and boy was it cold.  We had some snow on the ground this morning but most of it was gone by the afternoon.



There are a lot of very large rocks at the base of the falls.


I hope you enjoyed your visit to Inglis Falls.  I will take you for another visit when the seasons have changed.  For more information on Inglis Falls, click here.

  2. What beautiful falls! I can imagine the sound of the water. And that's a long ways down to the river below! Your pictures really tell a story. It's so sad that the mill burned. What a loss for that family. I wonder how they managed a livelihood after the fire. Have a wonderful week and a blessed Easter.

  3. Your photos are gorgeous, I loved seeing the falls in all their rushing beauty! It is amazing how the grist mills harnessed the power of the water isn't it! I do love the sound of rushing water, it is just so relaxing to hear. I can imagine just how beautiful these falls would be with bright spring colors, or glorious fall colors too. Beautiful, and so nice to be able to visit close to your home too! Enjoyed my visit here today Kelly, and hope you are having a lovely day :)
