Jones Falls is a beautiful waterfall to visit this winter, or anytime of the year. We found a special kind of beauty during the winter season though. If you aim to make the trek down to the bottom of the falls, you will find a breathtaking view of an ice covered waterfall and surroundings. View the falls at your own risk. While the trail is maintained and marked, there aren’t fences. Snowshoes are optional but may be necessary after a heavier snowfall. Flow of the falls also vary depending on the time of year.
You will find Jones Falls off of highway 6, just off of Highway 21 by Springmount near Owen Sound. The falls are nestled in the Pottawatomi Conservation Area. To reach them you must arrive at the park head at the Information Centre. The hike there is around half a kilometer one way. Begin your hike from the parking lot through the forest. As you arrive at the top of the falls, you will have the option of admiring the view from the top and/ or descending to the bottom. If you keep following the trail, you will head downwards towards the falls. This is an easy walk down but can become difficult in rain or snow while going through the rock wall crevice. This is also a very beautiful and interesting spot. Make sure you wear clothes that are okay to be dirtied. When you reach the bottom, you will be rewarded with stunning views of the waterfall and surrounding rock face.
Visiting Jones Falls is perfect if you have been craving a new adventure within the area. We hope you enjoy the hike and beautiful views as much as we did!
