The Feversham Gorge – Madeleine Graydon Memorial Conservation Area is located just west of the Village of Feversham on Grey County Road 2.  Consisting of 14 hectares (35 acres) this is an area of geological and biological interest.

The gorge begins on private property at an old mill dam in Feversham and extends downstream along the Beaver River.  It’s vertical limestone walls, towering 24.4 meters (80 feet) over the crystal clear river, are cloaked with conifers and ferns.

The Beaver River is relatively shallow along this section of the gorge,  with several inviting pools and bubbling rapids along its course.  Although somewhat hard to access, the cliffs are a botanist’s paradise and are home to a number of rare ferns, mosses and liverworts.  These plants thrive in the permanent shade created by the trees and limestone cliffs.

The table land above the gorge consists of a hiking experience of 1.5 km  trail, mixed coniferous and deciduous tree cover.
