Excerpt from gowaterfalling.com:

Province: Ontario

Location: Owen Sound.

Height: 55

Crest: 30?

Water Source: Sydenham River

Summary: This is a big impressive waterfall and definitely worth visiting if you are in the Owen Sound area. It is a 4 hour drive from Hamilton to Owen Sound, and in a day you could visit 10 or more waterfalls of the Niagara Escarpment.

Inglis Falls is south of Owen Sound on Highway 6/10, in the Inglis Falls Conservation Area. This waterfall is also on the Bruce Trail.

This is a well developed area with a parking lot right at the top of the falls. There used to be a large mill here, but it burned down years ago.

From the parking lot, you can reach the bottom of the gorge by heading down the trails to the left (facing downstream). There really is not a well defined trail, but it is not that hard to find a way down. There is a nice spot to the right at the base of the falls, but our first attempt to find a way down there failed. The gorge is very steep to the right. Just as we are about to give up, we noticed one of the locals appear down there. He showed us his way down, which involved some steep descents and some jumps from rock to rock, but it is a nice view.

Excerpt from gowaterfalling.com:

Province: Ontario

Location: Owen Sound

Height: 45

Crest: 25

Water Source: Indian Creek

Summary: This is another of the many waterfalls along the Niagara Escarpment. It is only a few minutes drive away from downtown Owen Sound, followed by a 15 minute walk along the river and through the woods to the falls themselves. Definitely worth visiting while in the area. If you like waterfalls, the Owen Sound area is worth a trip by itself.

The walk to the falls is about 1km. The trail first descends down to the river level and follows the river upstream through the woods. A wooden stairway takes you to the top of the gorge. The trail continues to the top of the falls. There are some steep sections. There used to be a barbed wire fence along the edge of the falls, but it has been mostly knocked down, so be careful.

If you are interested in photography, you will want to visit this falls earlier in the day.

To reach the falls from Owen Sound head north on 2nd Ave. West. This is also known as Hwy 2 and the Eddie Sargent Parkway. The conservation area is on the left.

Excerpt from Owen Sound Historic Walking Tour:

Built in 1912 as the Grand Opera House, it was purchased in the 1920s by John Griffin and renamed "Griffin's Theatre". With further renovations in 1948, it became an Odeon Theatre. The Owen Sound Little Theatre, formed in 1961, bought the building in 1986 and renovated it for their use.
