  • If you're looking for a short easy walk to a local Hamilton waterfall. Tiffany falls might be one of the easiest to get to. Once there you can see that the is quite impressive for such an easy trek. Parking is $2 per hour however on a busy day you may have to wait for a spot to clear out.
  • Short walk, around 10 minutes, to get to Tiffany Galls. When I went their was water but I heard that sometimes it dries up. Nice to get in nature and see all of the different plants and sometimes animals. The picture I posted is the stream leading up to the falls. Have fun!
  • Hike in to one of the most stunning waterfalls in the Hamilton region. Bring your camera for amazing opportunities of pictures in a 360 ° direction, layer in colder months and just enjoy the natural beauty. Wear good hiking shoes if you wish to travese the rocky terrian for an up close and personal waterfall experience.
  • Wonderful frozen Tiffany Falls. Nice place to go but with limited parking. It is for a short visit.
  • Great short walk, just under 400 meters to the falls from the parking lot. Good walk to take the elderly and there is a bench along the route. Lovely fall colours too. Workers were rebuilding the five wooden stairs to the viewing platform.
