Harrison Park Trail


Nestled below the falls are the remains of a gristmill built by Peter Inglis in 1845. Shortly after the mill was established, a sawmill was added. This was converted to a woollen mill in the 1870's. in 1862, the gristmill was replaced by a larger four storey building which operated until destroyed by fire in 1945. The millstones from the original mill remain on display above the the falls. The Bruce Trail enters the area at Highway #6 and follows along the escarpment edge. Another trail runs behind the Administration Centre and a cross-country ski/hiking trail joins Harrison Park to Inglis Falls.



Salmon, Rainbow and Brown Trout inhabit the area and can be seen in the spring and fall. Above the falls there is a small marsh with a boardwalk for viewing wildlife. The surrounding forests consist of both deciduous and coniferous trees, such as White Ash, Ironwood, Hemlock and White Pine. Wildflowers can be found in abundance, including Great White Trillium. Solomon's-seal and showy Lady's Slipper. Blue Jays, Wood Thrush and Pileated Woodpeckers are among the many birds that can be found in this area.
