Weaver’s Creek Falls, Ontario

Weaver’s Creek Falls in October 2010

Weaver’s Creek Falls might be the smallest of the falls in the Owen Sound area, but it might also just be one of the most peaceful and quiet in the area too…and that’s surprising, considering how close it is to a very busy park. It’s almost hidden and unassuming. There are no real signs indicating that there’s a waterfall just a few hundred feet away.

The only negative thing about the falls is that it is partially on private property, and while there is a trail clearly leading to the falls, a sign says no trespassing just before you get to the falls. Oh well, you can still get a pretty good view. And the view is especially scenic during fall, when the fall colors kick in. With those fall colors, the forest floor becomes vibrant!

Directions:

  1. From Owen Sound, head south on 2nd Ave East.
  2. Turn left into Harrison Park, and almost directly after that, turn right. (It might be the only way you can go).
  3. Head down that road to the swimming pool. When I was there, you couldn’t actually go all the way down the road, and it ended at a gate. This was the perfect place to park.
  4. To the right of the pool you’ll find a boardwalk that leads over Weaver’s Creek and heads upstream to the falls.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 9′
Hike: 0.2 miles round-trip
