About Fergus Cascade
The falls at Fergus are not as attractive as those nearby at Elora. But the walk atop the rocky gorge through downtown Fergus is still worth a trip. The main stretch is between Tower St and St. David St, where the pleasant trail runs behind the picturesque stone buildings of the main street. A footbridge over the Grand offers a view of the low gorge and small cascade. There is more whitewater upstream at the Gartshore/Scotland St Bridge. Though it's actually caused there by a dam across the river, the picturesque old stone mill buildings make for a worthwhile picture from the south side of the river at Confederation Park.
