You can easily do a driving tour with a map of any of the numerous falls. Very inexpensive and all easy to find. Lovely quite way to take a hike too. I grew up in this area and it can easily be taken for granted.

The waterfalls of Hamilton are always fun. Our kids love climbing Albion falls. Walking up the creeks in an old pair of shoes is also an awesome way to enjoy the outdoors.

I went to the Spencer Gorge Conservation Area which is home to 2 waterfalls, Tews Falls and Webster's Falls. No lack of natural beauty but entry fee was high. It was 10 dollar for car parking excluding driver and passengers and 5 dollars for each person to enter the attraction. I have no clue why the Hamilton Conservation Authority charges... More

I was a guest taken by experts, so naturally I was impressed. The walks and bridges were marvelously maintained, and the falls are part of the same geological formations that give us Niagara, but around Hamilton you see things on a more intimate scale. Great outing, great places for picnics.

Perfect spot for a walk and taking pictures. Easy access from the nearby parking area. Instead of going straight from the parking area onto the path to the falls, take the path to the right, cross the bridge over the creek and along the first footpath to the left. You come up to the falls on the east side. Incredible... More

Hamilton has a reputation as an industrial city, but for those from the city Hamilton's nature has always been our secret. With over 100 waterfalls it's hard to give a blanket review for all of them, as they range in size. A large number of them are easily accessible but a few require a bit of hiking. Some sites are...
