About McGowan Falls
A fairly small waterfall, most visitors will probably use this as a pit stop on the way up to bigger waterfalls around Owen Sound. But I've always liked this little spot. The falls are set just below a small dam over which you can walk. On the far side of the falls is a conservation area. Cross the bridge and follow the very nice walking trail to the left that follows the rocky woods beside the river as it flows back to town. This is a low, wide cascade, perhaps 3-4 m high and about 12-15 m wide.
