Hamilton, Ontario



0.6 miles

Route Type



Added by Andrea Thompson

A 17 meter curtain waterfall only 30 meters from the road, accessible all year round.

To access Sherman Falls park on the side of the road at the access point. You'll likely already see the falls from here, depending on the time of year. It's also a pretty popular spot, due to the ease of access, so it's best to go early to avoid the crowds.

Sherman Falls is 17 meters high and is actually sometimes dry in the late summer months. It's easy to get right up to the base of the falls, just follow the side of the river off the trail.

This isn't really a hike at all, more of a short walk from the road. There are a couple of wooden bridges in place to allow you to cross over the river easily.
