Good trail to hike with a dog.

Has a hidden trail (no trespassing sign) with beautiful waters, but not safe for swimming or drinking (e.coli) but really is gorgeous

From the Parking lot take the trail on THE RIGHT, behind the playground. Nicely paved trails the opposite way as well but you won't see the falls.

Muddy in sections due to recent rains, but otherwise a fairly dry trail. Thick canopy, lots of shade, relatively hilly. overall a nice hike.

Absolutely amazing hike. Have to cross a busy road twice to get to both falls. Park at Artaban and follow the road to the trail head. Sherman falls is breathtaking and just a short hike to Tiffany is such a great way to spend the afternoon. So worth it on a weekday when you might get the falls all to yourself. I was hoping to continue to hike to Canterbury ( on the trail from Sherman in the opposite direction of Tiffany ) but that trail is closed. Still worth it and the most memorable Hamilton trail for my family ranging in ages 8-52

Start off in the parking lot and head around the falls and onto the road for a short period. Due to vegetation it’s hard to see it in all its glory. If you continue on the trail past the falls a down some treacherous stairs and steep slopes you will come upon a small bridge with a cascade below it. Awesome hike . Hard trip back for everyone but my 11 yr old daughter who was leading the pack the entire way. Really challenging yet fun hike

great tree coverage for those who don't like the hot sun. challenging inclines for beginners

Didn't get far in because of the danger sign that read "rabid racoons have been spotted in this area, if you come in contact seek medical treatment immediately". Next time I'll come with someone or buy pepper spray. Really beautiful place with minor traffic. Can see a beautiful lake on a bench side before you walk in. Free parking too! Very peaceful

We had to jump over a river on the path which was hard lol

Fun hike ending with great waterfall!

Tiffany Falls is quite a nice waterfall, but it is a small hike. But when you cross the road there is a quite a nice long hike to another falls, which is also very nice and relatively big.

Started at Cascade Park..quite the climb up but lots of fun. Very busy on a holiday but a lot of friendly people.

Beautiful hike on the Bruce Trail through the forest after Felker’s Falls. Note that there are some very large drops right beside the trail at Felkers Falls to be very careful of if especially if you have children hiking with you. The Devils Punch Bowl side trail is half on the road but well worth it to the see the bowl and the amazing lookout across Hamilton and Stoney Creek and past to Toronto. There’s a good little stop at the Punch Bowl Market and Bakery along the road to get some fresh treats. A really nice overall hike. This is one of the hikes noted in Hamilton Hikes Loops and lattes books by Nicola Ross and Amy Darrell.

More of a walk than a hike.

This trail is dog friendly with great views! I had to pay 15$ to park (via all trails directions). I started the trail incorrectly 3 times ( it could be marked more clearly). The forest and falls were beautiful. I wish I could have explored more, but one of the paths were blocked off. The trail was fun, but I enjoyed water down tail to Smokey much more!!

I finished a 2.5 trail when I started this one. It was long but beautiful, I will definately comeback to do the whole stretch one day.

Very peaceful and relaxing afternoon walk. Definately is a must if you want a quiet walk or run in this area.

Second time going to this place. It's beautiful as always, there are mosquitoes in some area, so beware. When I was there it was raining day before so it was a bit muddy but not too bad. I definitely recommend this!

beautiful in June!!

Fairly easy trail. Well marked. Used by walkers, bikers and horseback riders. Only negative is lots of horse droppings left on the path. Folks pick up after their dogs but this is not a requirement for horse manure. Why?

Such a great day on the trail. Just enough hills And valleys and small waterfalls. Helpful staff too. We’ll be back.

Good trail, well-groomed but can get a little busy. There’s also a busy street crossing where Tiffany Falls is located.
