Access to the base of the falls is STRICTLY prohibited AT ALL TIMES.
Indian Falls is CLOSED during the winter months for YOUR SAFETY. The trail leading to the falls is along and on the Indian River. Accumulating snow pack and ice may become unstable and injury may occur. The trail will re-open in May.
The 15 metre high waterfall was formed by the erosion of soft Queenston shale beneath hard Manitoulin dolomite, in a manner similar to Niagara Falls. Please note, that the flow of water is minimal in the late summer and early fall months.
The hiking trail begins next to the washroom building. This 0.8km rigorous trail to the falls is very rigorous and is rated “difficult” – rocky terrain, steep path/cliffs.
Near the parking area, in a reclaimed gravel pit, sits ball diamonds, tennis courts and playground equipment. These recreational facilities are owned and maintained by the Township of Georgian Bluffs for its residents, thus demonstrating a successful partnership between two different organizations.
During the winter and early spring, the trail is closed at Indian Falls.
