Almost inside a city, Indian Falls are in Sarawak Township, at the northwestern edge of Owen Sound. A one-kilometre walk through Indian Falls Conservation Area leads through ferns, trees and wildflowers. The horseshoe-shaped falls drop to a quiet pool before Indian Creek flows on to empty into Owen Sound Bay.Driving Directions:Follow the scenic Georgian Bay Route from 2nd Avenue West to Grey Road 1. Look for Conservation Area sign directing you west to parking area.

This waterfall is amazing. It reminds me of a miniture Niagara falls. It's a nice hike up to the falls, it has a well marked trail. This is a must see attraction. Just go out and enjoy yourself.

Lots of free parking. Washrooms. Closed in the winter and early spring. A beautiful but challenging trail that is about 1 km long leads you along the Indian River and up the gorge. There are 2 levels of stairs that assist your 15 metre ascent....More

Beautiful view of the falls, and very nice hiking trails as well. They go right down to the bottom of the falls. Quite the hike, but very worth it. Beautiful at any time of the year but especially breathtaking during a clear winter day.

Great place to enjoy the outdoors. The hike to the falls is not too strenuous and can be done in under an hour.

Great waterfall to go and check out. Nice hike and you can get up above the waterfall and you can also go down below and see it from the canyon.

This year the normal path has flooded because of heavy rain. It is a tortuous walk and the path to the bottom of the falls was inaccessible during our visit. We made it to the top successfully. Will return in the fall and next year!

The trail to view the top of the falls is very well-maintained and a nice walk. There were some people stream bashing and there is a trail along the stream but it was pretty muddy and awkward attimes. You could slip down easily if you...More

This waterfall lies west of the ball diamond in Balmy Beach. Park in the parking lot, then look for the trail markers. For the most part, the trail is not that challenging, although there is one portion you have to climb up to the top...More
