  • We have been to this waterfalls twice and it's one of many of my favourite waterfalls. It's easy to get to the falls. It's a very popular falls and there is always no parking spots in the lot. You are...  more »
  • Spring is the time to visit Tiffany Falls as that's when the water roars over the edge and creates a mini Niagara River with the way it weaves its way through the ravine, the trails are nicely groomed...  more »
  • When you need peace.... It is not so far off the beaten track that you can stop on the way home from work or just because you are passing by.  more »
  • Short walk in to see the falls from Wilson. Cross the road, take the trail and walk to Sherman falls (about 15 minutes). Or, if there's no parking on Wilson at Tiffany falls, drive up Wilson to Montgomery, to old Dundas road, park there. See Sherman falls first. Walk through the trails to see Tiffany falls.
  • The hike from the parking lot was less than a 10 min walk to the fall, there was another trail as well that leads somewhere else, but I didn't go on that one. The fall isn't a huge one but that's ok because I loved that I was able to get up close to it. Just carefully walk on the rocks (quite slippery) towards the waterfall and you can get right under it. It wasn't busy when I went, we were the only ones there for a good 30 mins.
  • There is two entrances to the falls. One requires a long hike to see the top of the falls where there is two miniature sized falls leading to the final large one that has a separate entrance and paid parking and is the shorter of the two hikes. The main falls is moderate 30 min hike and the top falls is about a two hr hike.
  • Very beautiful, clean, and peaceful. It's a nice spot for Ancaster.
  • beautiful falls, short drive from toronto. can be busy especially in summer.
