No hike on the Bruce Trail is complete without a stop to take in one of the many Niagara Escarpment waterfalls you’ll find along the way. The Bruce Trail Conservancy is helping guide hikers in the right direction with these self-guided Waterfall Walks.
When exploring our region’s trails, waterfalls and conservation areas, please follow posted safety rules, stay on marked trails and do not climb or bypass fencing. Stay at least a body length away from escarpment and gorge edges and always be alert for potential hazards such as falling rocks and slippery rock surfaces.
The Great Falls Loop is a 3.5-km route, with an optional 1.1-km side loop. Hikers will enjoy stunning Escarpment views over Burlington and stops at Great Falls (also known as Grindstone, Waterdown or Smokey Hollow Falls). Get complete route details and map.
The Felker’s to Albion Falls Route is a 10.3-km route that showcases four beautiful waterfalls just steps away from urban Hamilton: Felker’s Falls, Glendale Falls, Albion Falls and Buttermilk Falls. Get complete route details and map.
