You Can’t Miss These Top 5 Waterfalls in the Hamilton area

Many of you may not actually know that more than 100 waterfalls can be found in and around Hamilton. There’s a list on this site that has all of the waterfalls in the area listed, with some information about them…if you’re interested.

I love exploring the waterfalls around Hamilton and have come up with a list of 5 of my favourite, let me know what you think!

1. Websters Falls

Websters Falls definitely has to go on the top of this list. It’s probably the most popular waterfall in the area, but it’s for a good reason. You can explore this waterfall from many different vantage points, at different times of the year…and it’s always beautiful! Bonus if you get to see it with a rainbow!

2. Borers Falls

Borers Falls is a little more “off the beaten bath” as far as Hamilton waterfalls go…which is part of the reason why I like it so much and feel it deserves a spot on the Top 5 Waterfalls in the Hamilton Area. It’s pretty much a guarantee that you’ll be the only ones at this waterfall, and you can explore it year round!

3. Decew Falls

I love Decew Falls for a bunch of reasons, but especially because it’s a fantastic swimming spot in the summer months! It’s near the top of the┬áTop 5 Waterfalls in the Hamilton Area for other reasons too, though. Check out my blog on Decew Falls if you’re interested in more information on this amazing waterfall hike!

4. Sherman Falls

Although Sherman Falls waterfall is a little smaller than the rest of this list, it’s equally as impressive! I promise, it deserves a spot on the Top 5 list! It’s a fun one in the summer when the water flow is a little lighter because you can safely climb up to the second tier of the waterfall! I should mention though that because of the easy accessibility of this waterfall, it’s usually pretty busy…wedding photographers, children…get there early!

5. Tews Falls

Tews Falls is actually almost as high as Niagara Falls and definitely makes the list of Top 5 Waterfalls in the Hamilton Area! It’s really impressive to look down from the viewing platform and appreciate the height of this waterfall. It’s extra impressive during the spring when the water level is a much higher.┬áCheck out my blog on Websters & Tews Falls if you’re interested in more information!
