The Beaver River in southern Ontario flows from the Niagara Escarpment to empty into Nottawasaga Bay, an inlet of Georgian Gay, at Thornbury, Ontario. The Beaver Valley is a deep wedge on the western side of the escarpment, formed by a much larger ancestor of this river. In 1853, the Eugenia Falls and 'Gold' were discovered by Brownlee . Hundreds of farmers rushed to make their fortune, only to find that it was pyrite known as 'fools gold' :(The river is a moderate size and at Eugenia Falls it falls into a deep gorge. Thousands of years of erosion reveal a section of the escarpment that stretches across Ontario from Niagara. A 'fall' of roots over the cliff.World War I soldiers are honoured by a statue. The Bruce Trail is a hiking trail that laces across the Grey County.

Some fall colour!
