Guide to 11 of the Best Waterfalls of Hamilton

One of the secrets that only locals know about is the fact that Hamilton is home to over 100 waterfalls hidden in plain sight around the Niagara Escarpment that cuts through tie city.

Hamilton often gets a bad reputation for being a steeltown with imagery of its mounds of coal, fire-lit towers, and billowing smoke but there's more than meets the eye.


Albion Falls

The Red Hill Creek tumbles majestically over multiple layers of rocks to cast a wider and and wider veil as it falls further down.

Also called Rock Chapel falls, this one is a bit smaller from the others and a little harder to see, this also has the advantage of being lesser known and has a ton of great hiking opportunities.

Borer's Falls

Canterbury Falls

This is one of the smallest waterfalls on this list but still not-to-be-missed especially if you're planning a trip to Dundas Valley Conservation Area.

Formed by glacial waters during the last ice age, Devil's Punchbowl has a distinctive horseshoe cliff face where the water pummels into the gorge below.
