There are a number of waterfalls in Grey County, Ontario near Owen Sound. One of the more widely visited falls is Eugenia Falls. But there’s another waterfall very close by: Hoggs Falls.
While not as tall as Eugenia Falls, I found it to be more interesting in a number of ways. First off, it wasn’t nearly as crowded. There were a few others along the trail, but not enough to make it seem crazy. There was also more water flowing over it (though Eugenia Falls seemed to be at very low flow). Even the scenery around the falls was beautiful. I visited the falls in fall when the colors were changing, and the colors around the falls really just popped!
- From the intersection of Highway 4 and Grey County Road 13, head west on Highway 4 for a short distance.
- After that short distance, turn right onto East Back Line Road.
- After another short distance, turn right onto Lower Valley Road.
- Head to the parking area on the right along Lower Valley Road. The trail is across the road on the left. It’s a short distance to the falls.
