Webwood Falls, donated to the Bruce Trail Conservation Corridor by James Horwood, is a hidden gem in Grey County.
These stunning falls are located within 100 meters from the nearest side road and are reachable with a quick hike. The waterfalls are caused by two trickling streams coming together that drop down the Niagara Escarpment and go down into a deep river valley. To get to the bottom of the waterfall, you must go left down the side of the observation deck. It can be a slippery way down, weather dependent, so use caution.
If you plan to visit Webwood Falls, make sure to take extra care not to take or to leave anything behind on your visit as it’s located in a very delicate ecosystem on the Bruce Trail. It is an important habitat for butterflies, bees, moths, swamp sparrows, deer, and a pair of Sandhill Cranes. it also boasts a sugar maple forest and endangered species. Some erosion has already begun happening along the ravine. The hike is closed during the winter.
