The gorge begins on private property at an old mill dam in Feversham and extends downstream along the Beaver River. Its’ vertical limestone walls, towering 24.4 meters (80 feet) over the crystal clear river, are cloaked with conifers and ferns.
The Beaver River is relatively shallow along this section of the gorge, with several inviting pools and bubbling rapids along its course. Although somewhat hard to access, the cliffs are a botanist’s paradise and are home to a number of rare ferns, mosses and liverworts. These plants thrive in the permanent shade created by the trees and limestone cliffs.
The table land above the gorge consists of a hiking experience of 1.5 km (.9 mile) trail, mixed coniferous and deciduous tree cover.
The Senior League Society of Collingwood coordinated funding for the purchase of this property. Donations were provided by numerous interested individuals with the bulk of the money being contributed by the Graydon Family in memory of Madeleine Graydon, the Labatt Family and John Labatt Ltd.
