nice open trails and easy to follow

Great walk for everyone, make sure to go when it’s not too hot out otherwise the falls will be dried

Can't beat a trail where all you hear is nature and rushing water

Trail started out nice on top of the escarpment , some nice views . As it got into the city the local riffraff was out in force damaging the trail and spray painting everything . A couple punks wanted to get into it with us , they ran off . The million dollar bridge over the QEW highway is interesting . This trail fell short of expectations . Be prepared on this one !!

This is my staple trail. I do the main loop about 60x a year!

Waterfall was fantastic! A great place to cool off...

great time cant wait till next time

great place to go in the summer is even more beautiful in the winter , found the trail to high pond lookout was a challenge but worth it

Great for a winter hike!

Saw five deer and a spotted hawk today. Trail was busiest around the waterfalls. Nice short little hike.

Rocky trail path so excercise caution during winter and trecherous condition's, lots of variance in terrain, mature trees, interesting rock and steep cliff formations, breath taking Sherman Falls, spectacular late fall frozen icelcles, Tiffany Falls similar but more visable natural stone stair case as water flows. Definitely an intermediate hike worth visiting all year round.

We hiked the left hand side of the Swayze Falls trail loop and returned by the middle trail as shown on the map. This was on a beautifully sunny November 27th with no wind but 3 degrees C but was a wonderful experience. It took just over two hours. Swayze Falls did have water in it despite it being late in the year and the waterfall (at the south end of the loop .. not marked on the map) was gorgeous with a bridal veil type falls dropping about 80 feet or so. I added a photo of the falls to the photos area.

Nice hike, can be made much longer if you add in some of the Bruce Trail side trails. Beautiful scenery and pretty level ground throughout. Would rate this ‘easy’ for any type of regular hiker. Dogs loved it and there is parking on site! $6.75 entrance fee.

absolutely beautiful!☺

Falls are worth the trip. Bruce trail sections are fun.

Great trail along the river bank. Bruce Trail started off with a waterfall, then straight down hill. Lots of up and down hills and great views. Small parking lot at Mill Street South and Waterdown Rd. No fee.

It is rated moderate but it is as easy as it gets.

Super cute trail that is pretty easy to do. It can definitely be really busy, though.

Lovely, especially when you think of the natural and artistic history surrounding it. The views are pretty and the way to the bridge can be a little difficult but once you cross the trail is beautiful.

Good size waterfall! Apparently spring is the prime time to go for water flow, however fall allowed us to walk through it as it was gentle enough. Decent access to the falls, still accessible to explore, not fenced off like some. Good set of trails attached to this waterfall. (Sometimes there’s not much to do other than be directly at the falls). Interesting section of the Bruce for a city stretch, nice that it has loop options.

Interesting little trail, that exceeded my expectations. Rocks, roots, hills, and a waterfall. A hidden gem.

Muddy terrain with lots of hills. Amazing views of the waterfall and the trail follows the river for a little while! I really liked the challenge and the calming feeling of the area.

Love the gentle terrain, nice rocky streams, tall trees and friendly horse riders. Can be a a bit busy with mountain bike riders on weekends. Nice highlight is the trail center, lots of interesting wild life facts, amazing old style steam train. Overall a nice trail.

There is very little hiking on this trail. You have to pay for parking and a shuttle to get to the falls.

We got onto some side trails- Hoggs Lower and Upper trails. It was beautiful hike, longer then we expected but our own fault as we didn't really know where we were going. Walked a good part of the Bruce Trail as well.
