Getting to Hamilton’s Waterfalls
Most of the waterfalls in Hamilton are situated on the Niagara escarpment (a UNESCO world biosphere site) in and along the Bruce Trail and can require anywhere from minimal walking to a long distance hike to access. Because the waterfalls are situated beside steep drops and difficult to access locations it is important to stick to marked paths and viewing areas.
