Hamilton has the best waterfalls around, but a word to the wise - STAY ON THE PROVIDED TRAILS!!! My friend and I decided to climb down a little closer to one of the neighbouring waterfalls a little ways down from Tiffany's falls (maybe Sherman or Ancaster??) anyways... climbing down into the forest provided a great view! BUT unfortunately there was... More

Recently spent a few days in Hamilton and accidentally came across a reivew of the city noting it has 127 waterfalls in the area. Went on a bit of an adventure to find a few and discovered Webster Falls and Tews Falls (near Dundas) as well as Tiffany Falls and Albion Falls (in Hamilton). Three of the hikes/walks I did... More

The Niagara Escarpment bisects the city of Hamilton and creates dozens of waterfalls. Some are large like Webster's Falls and others small like Chedoke Falls, some are fairly low like Sherman Falls and others higher than Niagara Falls like Tews Falls. The Bruce Trail winds by almost all of them and in many cases the City of Hamilton or the... More

The waterfalls of the Dundas Valley are plentiful, but each one is unique in its beauty. If you are looking for a relaxing afternoon with the sounds of running water, a quick hike will provide the serenity you are seeking. Favorites include; Webster's Falls and Sargent Falls. A great idea for some family bonding or just to get some exercise.

Ontario is blessed with hundreds of waterfalls. Hamilton, Ontario is the waterfall capital of the world. I think, we, in Hamilton boast 127 waterfalls. A must visit.

We have visited several of Hamilton's waterfalls in the past but have recently decided to try to see as many of them as we can. I have downloaded 4 maps of the Greater Hamilton area showing the waterfalls in each of the four areas. This weekend we started with Devil's Punchbowl and Lower Punchbowl Falls in the Stoney Creek section.... More

Hamilton is blessed with several waterfalls throughout the area that enhance a hikers visit. Spencers gorge in Dundas includes Websters Falls, Chedoke Falls overlooking Chedoke golf course and Albion Falls are just a few of the delightful waterfalls you will see when you visit the Hamilton area. Some of the waterfalls are linked as part of the Bruce Trail system... More

Hamilton's Waterfalls truly are one of Ontario's best kept secrets. The Niagara Escarpment runs completed thru the entire city, splitting the city in two. The upper half being approx. 400 feet higher than the lower half. The escarpment runs 20 kilometres thru the city. So all of the water and rivers on the upper half have to go somewhere so... More
