Grey County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have safety concerns with the actions of some members of the public who are choosing not to follow the posted signs at Eugenia Falls in Grey Highlands. Grey Sauble Conservation has posted signs to keep visitors on the trails and within the assigned viewing areas for the falls.

From a Grey County OPP media release, if you make the choice to go outside of the assigned viewing area or leave the marked trail and you are observed in this activity by police you may be charged with engage in prohibited activity on premises under the Trespass to Property Act.    

The greater concern is the physical safety of those who don't follow the posted signs. In 2017 police responded, with other emergency services, for two separate incidents where a person had fallen after leaving the assigned viewing area and marked trails. In July 2017, a 19-year-old male died after falling 40 feet from a cliff and in August 2017, a 25-year-old female was seriously injured after she fell 30 feet.

Grey County OPP want visitors to enjoy all that the area has to offer but you are being asked to follow the direction of the posted signs, for your own safety.

If you witness anyone choosing not to follow the posted signage contact Grey County OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
