Crest: 6m

Water Source: Tiffany Creek

Waypoint: 43.2413N 79.954W

Summary: A very scenic falls when it has water, but not as reliable as many of the other nearby Niagara Escarpment waterfalls. Definitely worth a visit when the water is flowing.

Tiffany Falls is in the Tiffany Falls Conservation Area in Ancaster. It is located off of Wilson Street where it descends the escarpment. There is a parking area, but the signs are not easily visible from the road. The trail to the falls was improved in 2007 and now includes two bridges across the creek and a viewing platform below the falls.

Tiffany Creek does not have a large watershed and the falls can get pretty thin in the summer. In spring or rainy weather the falls is quite impressive. This page includes photos from June 2004 and May 2011 and the difference is quite noticeable.

The Bruce Trail passes near Tiffany Falls. A side trail goes to the falls. A 15 minute hike down the Bruce Trail will take you to Sherman Falls. The trail is never far from the road, but is far enough below it that you will not see any cars. You can still hear the traffic however.

[Hamilton Area] Nearby Falls

The smaller Washboard Falls and Stephanie Falls are upstream of Tiffany Falls, but there is no easy way to get to either of them.

Sherman Falls is around the corner off of Old Dundas Rd. Webster Falls, Tews Falls and Borers Falls are a short drive away. Smokey Hollow Falls, Albion Falls, Devil's Punchbowl Falls, and Felker Falls are also all nearby.
