Summary: There are two waterfalls and a precipitous gorge here to explore, but if you are pressed for time you may want to first explore some of the other nearby falls of the Niagara Escarpment.

Upper Beamer Falls is in the Beamer Memorial Conservation Area, near Grimsby Ontario. There is an upper and lower falls. Finding this falls is relatively easy. Exit the QEW at Christie Street. I do not recall seeing any signs for the conservation area from the road. Head south. Continue south (straight) when you reach the intersection with Main Street. You will now be on Mountain Road. Drive up the escarpment, and take the first left, which is Ridge Road. There is a sign for the conservation area at the corner of Mountain and Ridge. There are two parking areas for the conservation area. The first one is not marked, and is on the right side of the road before you cross the bridge over the creek. From here you can easily see both falls. You can get up close to the upper falls from here. You can look over the edge to see the lower falls from above, but be careful as it is a long way down.

If you continue on the road across the bridge you will find the "official" parking area for the Beamer Memorial Conservation Area. From here there is a trail that leads down into the gorge where you can get a good view of the lower falls.

Here is a short movie of Beamer Falls.
