The falls are along the Bruce Trail where the Sydenham River meets the Niagara Escarpment!

In order to see the falls at one of the platform viewpoint, you’ll need to follow the main trail.

Along the trails visitors can expect the following:

  • More than 20 species of ferns
  • Bird watching opportunities
  • A series of geological potholes
  • Historical remains of a grist mill
  • Washrooms
  • Picnic facilities
  • A visitor information centre

It is also worth noting that if you’re visiting Inglis Falls Conservation Area, you will have to pay a fee to enter.

Oh, and don’t forget to snack some photos of the waterfall before you head out!
