    Hamilton is full of great waterfalls, and this is one of the most easily accessed. The waterfall often drops in August and September, but it is exceptionally good this year.  more »

    Don't visit Ancaster/Hamilton without making a quick stop to Tiffany Falls. Whilst this is on my commute work, stopping to decompress here does wonders. When our grandsons first came to Canada we took...  more »

    Very disappointed. Pay 2 hours parking. 5 minutes walk to a very small falls. Total 10 minutes done. Will not come back again. The parking machine will not return extra money if you pay more.  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.
