McGowan Falls, Durham, Ontario
Set within the Durham Conservation Area, McGowan Falls is a gradual cascade, approximately 10 to 15 feet high. The setting is pretty with cedars growing all around.
The falls are named after a miller who used the Saugeen River's power to run his mill. But now there's a dam with a bridge leading to a hiking trail. Behind the dam is a swimming area. No one except gulls and geese swimming there now. Brrrr!
Here you can see the sedimentary rock over and around which the river flows. It's dolostone formed millions of years ago under an ancient sea.
