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.
Please treat our outdoors and other visitors with respect. Many waterfalls have been closed to the public because of bad behaviour. Also, note that waterfalls are on the traditional lands of Canada's Indigenous Peoples.
