Hamilton’s Wonderful Waterfalls

Travel blogger Laura Byrne Paquet of Ottawa Road Trips, made a trip to our area and discovered there are some great options for outdoor fun here that she’d never expected. Follow Laura and Grand Experiences’ guide Dave Lubrick on their hike to Tiffany Falls and Sherman Falls. 

Hamilton is the Rodney Dangerfield of Ontario cities. It gets no respect. And that’s not fair.

Sure, it used to be known mainly as a steel town. And, granted, it does still have some gritty edges, although those are gradually being gentrified away.

But did you know that Hamilton is also home to 65 waterfalls? That’s courtesy of its location along the Niagara Escarpment, a landmark ridge that runs through Southern Ontario and gave us that other big cataract you might have heard of. (Hint: It shares its name with the escarpment.)
