INDIAN FALLS THUMB

 
 

The main natural feature of this site is the horseshoe shaped waterfall, named after the Nawash Indian tribe who lived in this area at one time. The 15 metre high waterfall was formed by the erosion of soft Queenston shale beneath hard Manitoulin dolomite, in a manner similar to Niagara Falls.

The 0.8km rigorous trail to the waterfall follows the Indian River, providing many opportunities to view a variety of tree, fern and wildflower species and wildlife.

Near the parking area, in a reclaimed gravel pit, sits ball diamonds, tennis courts and playground equipment. These recreational facilities are owned and maintained by the Township of Georgian Bluffs for its residents, thus demonstrating a successful partnership between two different organizations.
