  • This trail allows for both calm reflection and a great work out with stairs, flat trails and places to stop and catch your breath. The waterfalls is beautiful and a real treat after the walk in. There...  more »
  • These falls are a short walk away form the car park along a path. Very nice walk along the way and pretty falls to view when you reach them.  more »
  • Right on the edge of a portion of the Niagara Escarpment this is of geological and environmental interest . Because (apparently) of drought, the falls were more of a trickle. Much like when we visited...  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.
