Summary: A very scenic Niagara Escarpment waterfall located in the middle of Ancaster. It is just a short walk from your car, and there are many other waterfalls in the area to visit.

Sherman Falls is in Ancaster where the Ancaster Creek flows over the Niagara Escarpment. This is a surprisingly scenic waterfall hidden away in the middle of town. The creek is spring fed so this waterfall has a more steady flow than many in the area.

To reach Sherman Falls exit the 403 at the Rousseaux Street exit. Take a right onto Wilson Street, a left onto Montgomery Street, and a right onto Old Dundas Road. You will reach a stop sign where Old Dundas takes a sharp right. The dirt road in front of you is Lions Club Road. Park there. The falls are in the woods to your left. They are just visible from the road through the trees.

This is a very pretty waterfall. The rock here is much smoother than at most of the waterfalls in the area, and the water slides down the two tiers in a very graceful fashion.

Upstream Ancaster Creek tumbles over a smaller falls at the Old Mill Restaurant.

Here is a short movie of Sherman Falls.
