Hogg's Falls, the lesser-known neighbour of Eugenia Falls, is one of the many waterfalls of the Niagara Escarpment. Located in the forest preserve of Beaver Valley, it is a small (about 7 metres high and 14 metres wide), secluded, and mostly wild waterfall that has water all year round. Hogg's Falls is fed by Boyne River. It is a plunge waterfall, but unlike most plunge falls, there is no obvious underlying weaker formation below. The face of this waterfall consists of similar rock from top to bottom, and one does not see large blocks of dolostone littering the base like at so many other falls along the Niagara Escarpment. William Hogg built a sawmill upstream of the falls (originally referred to as “Little Falls”) in the late 1870’s. The mill burnt down in 1888 leaving only remnants of the original structure. Look for the trail to Hogg's Falls in Grey Highlands (Highway 10 and Grey Road 4) approximately 3.5 kilometres from the Ontario community of Flesherton. Watch for a new gravel parking area at 170566 Lower Valley Road. The walk to the falls from the parking lot is moderately-easy and takes less than four minutes. There are no platforms or fences or signs at the falls. There is, however, a nice, natural overlook. Getting to the bottom of the falls is not impossible. Just be careful and expect to get a bit muddy. The bottom of Hogg’s Falls appears to be a good spot for speckled trout. Hogg’s Falls is Crown Land. It is managed out of the Owen Sound Field Office of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. Several trails can be found throughout the surrounding forest, including one to Eugenia Falls and access to Bruce Trail (the oldest and longest marked hiking trail in Canada). Park in designated areas only. Camping is not permitted in the parking lot. Take your garbage with you.

So happy we made a point of stopping on the way home. The parking is free with enough space for about 12 cars. There is a porta potty on site. Free camping is allowed as it’s crown land. A short 5 minute walk led us to the beautiful falls. Some climb down to swim or take photos, but it didn’t appear to be safe.

This is a nice place to spend a day & relax. There are trails connecting to the Bruce trail and plenty of spaces for a little picnic, you can get down to the bottom of the fall and have a swim too. We would definitely visit this place again. The Eugenia falls is also close by

Hoggs Falls located on Lower Valley Road in Grey County is a must-see of the many waterfalls found in the area. Located just a short distance from the hamlet of Flesherton, Hoggs Falls should be a go-to stop for individuals and family's as well. There is a small parking lot, and the falls are a short hike of several hundred metres to the north. Simply follow the signs. There is also an information board that provides a bit of history of the falls. In the fall of 2019, a new set of steps was constructed near the parking area to make getting up a short, but steep incline much easier. Hoggs Falls also comprises a section of the world-famous Bruce Trail through this area. The falls are easily viewed from the top, but there has been in the past a rather "sketchy rope" used to climb down the rock face near the bottom of the falls. This should be done "at your own risk." The walls of the rock face and river bottom are constantly wet and slippery. So, use caution, please. Last time we visited, I believe that there was a portable toilet located in the parking area. But, I'm not sure of it there all of the time. A great place to stop when you're out in this area. You could visit for just a few minutes or make it your starting location for a longer day hike along the Bruce Trail.

Hoggs Falls loop (connected to the Bruce Trail) is a fantastic moderate hike around 5.7km. The Falls are beautiful but the rest of the trail provides a variety of interesting terrain. We did the hike in mid-October so the foliage was exceptional but we will definitely come back again in late Spring. It is very hilly and the damp leaves made some areas slippery and some parts of the trail were boggy - to be expected at this point in the Autumn - so good hiking shoes are a must. As much as my husband & I enjoyed the walk, our Golden, Max, enjoyed it ten times more! It is a great hike and worth driving out of your way to do.
