Beautiful trail but I would not rate this as easy or kid friendly. If you have older kids (7 years and up) maybe. It gets steep at times and the wooden steps are slippery after rains and metal poles stick out of the ground at unexpected places along the trail. Needs to be better maintained. The creek and waterfall are beautiful, however you often hear road sounds so it’s not a complete serene hike. Many dog walkers leave behind bags of dog waste which ruins it for everyone else. There is a trash bin at the start of the trail near the waterfall and parking is small (and they issue tickets when parked outside the lot boundary). The trail connects with another section of Bruce Trail so you can park somewhere else and hike a bit longer to avoid the parking mayhem.

Beautiful forest walk! We did the 0.9 km trail loop from the Heritage trail. Up hill half the way so it was good exercise and the granddaughters loved it!

It’s all nature and peace. Wonderful waterfall and a beautiful trail. Lots of rocks and roots cause ups and down in the trail.

Pain and basic. Well kept.

amazing trail! I don't like the $10 entrance fee.

There are so many trails that make up the Dundas Valley so your hike can be as long or short as you want it to be. Trail is well kept. Really enjoyed hiking here!

Beautiful! I would say this is more of a moderately difficult trail as opposed to the advertised easy due to up and down stairs and walking through rooted paths. Easy to me would mean flat wide trails. Can’t wait to go back in the fall!

At the suggestions of others here, we started the trail at Tiffany Falls and worked our way backwards. Started early in the morning so the it wasn’t super busy and it was a beautiful trail. My only disappointment is part of the trail at Sherman Falls is no longer accessible (closed to hikers) so thankfully we had a map for the Dundas Valley trails to jump on to reach Canterbury Falls

Love the trail but very grassy in spots my dog got a tick so be careful and check you and your pets!!!!

Have to start at Tews Falls parking lot and not Webster’s Falls. The trail between Webster’s Falls and Tews Falls is closed. Otherwise great hike.

This is a beautiful scenic trail! The view from the Peak is definitely worth seeing and a great place to stop and rest before turning back towards Tew’s Falls. The trail is not too challenging and offers some amazing scenery and views! Best to go mid week as it can get busy on the weekends!

awesome

Started at Tiffany falls and went backwards. Took my 12yr old daughter or her first hike and it was challenging but for for her. Well maintained and not a lot of traffic. Views were great.

An absolutely beautiful trail that starts at the waterfall. Easy to maneuver around the rocks, fallen trees and Staggered terrain. Perfect for the nature enthusiast like myself.

Nice Walk in the forest and some good views, but very busy and next to civilization

I would rate this as an easy trail not a moderate, but plenty of good views! A nice stroll

Beautiful trail and while I would definitely hike it again I would not recommend it for someone who isn’t used to hiking. My mom had a really hard time with how hilly and rocky the trail got in some places. Next time I would also agree with others who suggested parking at Tiffany Falls and taking the trail backwards. The parking near Sherman falls is pretty far from the trailhead and is uphill on the way back and after a hike on a humid day, that hill was not fun.

This trail is my favourite in Dundas. It is quick, and has some spectacular views of the surrounding area, flora, and fauna of Dundas Valley. I highly advise sunrise hikes here, since the sun rises with almost unobstructed views of the East. It is very magical, especially in summer when wildlife, and the morning humidity is abundant.

This hike is amazing. Elevation change, waterfalls, incredible biodiversity, and not heavily used. I recommend adding to the trail either by Sherman Falls, or the McCormack Trail, to make it easier to park and have some more beautiful additions.

Trail doesn’t exist at the end of the loop. Tried to follow it on the map which said we were on the trail but it wasn’t there. Wouldn’t recommend the loop to anyone! But going one way to the stairs down the cliff then turning back would be a nice hike

Great in the fall!

Parked at tews falls, has the biggest parking lot. Great hike with mild elevation. Can be very busy so avoid weekend afternoons.

Walking along with the creek. Wanderful waterfall! Very nice place for Hiking.

Great trail for getting little ones interested in hiking. Lots of roots and rocks to negotiate around. Waterfall views and river sound is awesome. Trees have fallen and block the path in a few spots. Girls had a blast and both fell asleep in the truck on the way home. Truly impressed to all those who put the time in to make the trail what is. Thank you.

It was a good hike! Lots of variation in the elevation and beautiful scenery. The only thing I would suggest is putting a parking lot closer to the beginning of the trail.
