Jones Falls Ancient Megalitic Site

Jones Falls is a pretty waterfall that is interesting to explore. It's a decent size, though smaller than the better known Inglis Falls and Indian Falls, both also in the outskirts of Owen Sound. You can park along the main east-west road leading west from Owen Sound, from which the falls is visible, at least when the leaves are off the trees. A short walk through the woods leads to a footbridge over the river above the falls, followed by more trails. One of the trails goes to the bottom of the falls. This is in a conservation area, and makes for a nice short hike.

Indian Falls Ancient Megalitic Site Ontario Canada

The 15 metre high waterfall was formed by the erosion of soft Queenston shale beneath hard Manitoulin dolomite, in a manner similar to Niagara Falls.  Please note, that the flow of water is minimal in the late summer and early fall months.

The hiking trail begins next to the washroom building.  This 0.8km rigorous trail to the falls is very rigorous and is rated “difficult” – rocky terrain, steep path/cliffs.

Near the parking area, in a reclaimed gravel pit, sits ball diamonds, tennis courts and playground equipment. These recreational facilities are owned and maintained by the Township of Georgian Bluffs for its residents, thus demonstrating a successful partnership between two different organizations.

During the winter and early spring, the trail is closed at Indian Falls.
