How wonderful that these stunning sights are just a short way from Toronto. Visited a few last Wednesday ( October 20th 2021) and I was amazed how accessible they are. This means that you can witness these little marvels even if you are not a fitness expert. Do remember to make on-line reservations prior to going as there are timed spots. Most likely it is the parks management's way to control traffic and capacity given Covid. I think the only one which seems not to require prior registration is Tiffany Falls where one can simply pay a parking fee and then follow a short trail to enjoy the Falls. Will go again to see the ones I haven't seen. I was hoping for more rich fall colours but perhaps I went a bit too early. Quite pretty nevertheless.

After Niagara Falls we wanted to continue our adventures! We came across these waterfalls after a couple minutes of research. You must have a car to get to these places. Also, keep in mind the grass/dirt; it will gets muddy at times. There are some hiking trails if you’re interested. If you stay in Downtown Toronto (on vacation) I highly suggest checking this place out.

A group of us decided to do a day tour to see some of the Waterfalls of Hamilton. We went on a weekend, so a few of the areas were quite busy, such as Tew's Falls and Webster's Falls. Others were not as busy such as Tiffany Falls and Sherman Falls. If you are planning on heading up, be sure to map out your route ahead of time and allow for at least 30-45 minutes of so for each stop. If you are visiting any of the Hamilton Conservation Area falls sites, you will have to pay for parking, about $5-$10. Be sure to keep that original ticket and keep it on your dash because it will be good for parking at any of the other Hamilton Conservation Area. If you are visiting on the weekend or holidays, know that the very busy Tew's Falls and Webster's Falls as well as Dundas Peak do not allow parking at the falls lots, you must park at Christie Lake and take their free shuttle buses from the Christie Lake parking area to the falls sites. On weekends and holidays you also have to pay $10 for parking (less the amount from any pass you have already purchased) as well as $5 per person, so it would be a good idea to car pool if several people are going. You could easily spend the day just exploring the Christie Lake, Tew's and Webster's Falls and Dundas Peak area, which offer beautiful and unique falls as well as spectacular views of the area and valley. Hamilton has hundreds of waterfalls scattered throughout the escarpment area, so it is impossible to see them all in one day, but with some planning you should be able to see quite a few of them in a season. A trip to see almost any of the waterfalls is well worth the visit.

Lovely find on last day on way to airport! The falls are lovely not to be missed and a walk is available but we didn’t have the time! Next time!

I went to hamilton on a day tour, part of which was to fill a few spare hours by checking out some waterfalls. we google searched & mapped but found them hard to find. The few we did find we're more giant trickles than falls, I think its best to view these during the spring

There's a reason why Hamilton is the waterfall capital with over 100 falls in the city, each of them, awesome to see. Each different from the other, some with nice hikes to get to, are nice to see, especially in my own backyard.

Ok, so my activity level as I have gotten older has.....diminished. So theother day I decided to visit one of Hamilton's many waterfalls. It is said that we (the city of Hamilton) are the waterfall capital of the world after all.

I pulled up to the location and was stunned. $5 parking fee. I had no cash on me, no debit or credit card, and match that with zero intention to pay to park at a natural spot, and let's just say, my visit came to a grinding halt.

Suffice to say, I didn't visit the falls, and to this point don't see it in my future. Pay taxes and pay for everything else that they can think of to make money off of you.

Next someone will try telling me that the Canadian government is going to make drug use legal as a cash grab. Wait, what?

Have been many times. Due to reckless people and people interested in selfies, a fence had to be put up to try and stop people from being injured, stuck and even killed.
It's a shame that the city had to do that because people lacked the intelligence to stay away from danger.
If going there do not cross the fence or try and get to the base of the waterfalls as you will be charged with trespassing..

Wonderful view. Spectacular hike. Some areas difficult for those with mobility issues
Dogs must be on leash.
