Summary: This is another of the many waterfalls along the Niagara Escarpment. A mill used to be located here and there is now an inn. The overlook does not provide a great view of the falls, but you can get down into the gorge with some effort. You can stop by and visit this waterfall after visiting the more impressive falls in Owen Sound, or on your way from Eugenia Falls to Owen Sound.

Walter's Falls is another of the many waterfalls of the Niagara Escarpment. This is a good sized waterfall on the edge of a small town. It used to be the site of saw mill and woollen mill. The saw mill burnt down, but the woollen mill remains.

The town Walters Falls is on the map. To reach the falls from the Owen Sound area, head east on Grey County Rd 18 to County Rd 29. Drive through Bognor and on to Walters Falls. Take a left on Front Street. The road soon ends in the parking lot of The Falls Inn. There is a platform above the top of the falls from where you can get some good, but not great views of the falls.

The Bruce Trail goes past the falls.
