Keefer Falls is just outside of Owen Sound, Ontario. This is another of the many waterfalls of the Niagara Escarpment. The trail to the falls is, or was, an official snowmobile trail, but the waterfall is on private property.
Visiting Keefer Falls
Keefer Falls is a great place to visit and there is a good chance you will have it to yourself, It wasn’t until researching after my visit that I found out that Keefer Falls was indeed on private property. Whether that was a recent occurrence or not, I don’t know.
Keefer Falls is a 25′ waterfall that was once the site of something called Slattery Mills Falls, just to the right of the brink there are the remnants of an old dam and some old stone walls.
If you do wish to visit Keefer falls, please remember that it is on private property and while accessing the waterfall is easy and well marked, it is not on public land.
More About Keefer Falls
Keefer Falls plunges about 40’to 50′ from Keefer Creek and then continues into Georgian Bay. It was named Slattery Mills Falls at one time and there are a few stone remains of an old mill. The land formation is very unique in the area surrounding the falls. It appears as though it is simply a flat field and as you approach the falls you can hear it and the land just drops off into a limestone hole into which the falls plummets.
