Photograph Great Falls
Canada › Great Falls, Ontario
Added by Mike Fennell
One of the larger waterfalls among the dozens that can be found in Hamilton, the Great Falls are a pleasure to photograph and easy to reach, being less than a minute away from the parking lot.
The perfect little adventure in the city of Hamilton, this waterfall is along the iconic Bruce Trail and can easily be turned into a longer adventure along the Grindstone Creek. It can be explored at any time of the year, whether you're looking for a lot of water in the spring, fall foliage in autumn, or a hot day with a cool mist in the summer.
From Hwy 403 take the Hwy 6 N (Guelph) exit and travel approximately 3 km to Hwy 5 E. (Dundas St. E.). Turn right on Hwy 5 E. and then turn right onto Mill St. before the railway tracks. After the overhead railway bridge the Smokey Hollow Resource Management Area parking lot will be on the right. This waterfall is next to the parking lot.
