Beautiful view at the bottom of the waterfall. Trail was tricky in parts as there have been some recent washouts. Overall, well worth it!

The view was incredible!!!! Three waterfalls were amazing to see. The only downside is the signs. Not enough signs for guidance.

Tried in the weekend and no access available. I get that it can be frustrating for residents to have many people coming and going but I'm pretty sure a better solution could have been found. Closest parking is at the Christie Lake conservation area, which is really far and $20 bucks (!!!) for a group of 2.

It was great. I took two kids with me, and they had a ton of fun. The whole trip was about 4km walking. I definitely agree with parking at Tiffany falls and working your way to Sherman Falls.

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.

Good hike but you get yelled at through a speaker to turn around when you get close the the falls

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.

Trail is closed unfortunately. You can hike from Tew’s down to the train tracks but that’s about it.

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!

Fun trail to go up and down the escarpment and when windy as well as mostly blocked.

Waterfall flow varies, we went when there was barely a waterfall. Still a great trail with beautiful greenery and good enough to Break a little sweat. some hills too steep for kids and some paths to the falls unstable.

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

A nice trail running along Spencer Creek trail.

I enjoyed this it as a nice scenic walk

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!

Well maintained and scenic trail.
Left Hamilton at 6am and arrived near end in Brantford around 9am. Bring water and munchies as no facilities on route.

awesome

Nice trail with many easy access points. I have gone about a dozen times and still continue to find news paths and views.

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.

Good trail. Heavily populated. Other then that, a great ride. Well maintained and a beautiful landscape.

Great bike from Brantford to Hamilton, really well maintained and enjoyable views of wooded areas and farm land.

No access to the falls as now the City of Hamilton fenced off all trails down. Some nice view spots but too far to enjoy the falls. Law officers are on the trails and giving fines up to 105CAD. Definitely looks like a permanent solution from the city. Too bad.
