Great short and quick hike. Pay attention to trail markers though!

We did about 2.5km of this trail and made it as far as the old military radar tower. Beautiful scenery and trail was not difficult at all. Our kids came with us and enjoyed it as well. We plan to see more of the trail soon.

The view at the end of the hike was breathtaking. I went in winter time and it was incredible seeing the falls half frozen. If you are hiking this hike in the winter time it may be tricky! Me and my dog made it but I feel we were on the wrong trail. After reading reviews it looks like you need to go to the left of the bridge. However, we went to the right and followed a beaten down deer path. The destination was the same but it may have made it a little trickier scaling down the steep and icy ravine with no rope guidance. I recommend this hike but be weary it’s not easy and you will get wet.

What a gem! I was so pleasantly surprised by all that I found upon arriving at the entrance gate to the conservation area. I paid the entry fee of $7 for one adult and parked the car in the spacious parking lot.
The trail head gave great direction to 3 wide and well marked trails in 3 different lengths. I chose the longest ( purple 8 km round trip) This was obviously the less traveled of the 3 but was wide and clear and mostly flat with forest, and a few ponds to view. Around the halfway point was a fire pit, picnic tables and plenty of fire wood. A great place to stop and warm up and have lunch and due to the longer trail and distance there are very few children.
The yellow trail was very flat and very smooth and possibly acceptable for a fitness strolled. Lots of families and children were on this trail. Along the way was a rest room and several random table to stop and take a break.
Upon arriving at the falls there are several tables and a big fire pit with plenty of seating and wood to burn.
There is a set of stairs that take you down to the bottom of the falls and is a great place to take photos.
This trail was not a difficult or strenuous trail but beautiful.

Things to bring: marshmallows, hot dogs, bird seed to hand feed the birds.

Great hike - lots to see and moderately challenging.

Many trails, many levels of hiking. Always a great place to go.

Great for fall, summer and winter hiking!!!!

Nice waterfall and easy trail for short winter hike

Did this loop with my dog on Christmas Eve day. It was beautiful and safe and fun. One side is closed for the winter, but the east side remains open and easy to navigate.

Good little trail. Suitable for all.

The path to the falls is a nice walk, lots of birds to see, take some seed to coax them down, there are fire pits at the falls for roasting marshmallows and warming up in the winter time

Excellent hike! Plenty of parking in the lot off Chestnut Ridge Rd. , however it is not plowed in the winter (as it is just loose stone.) You would be advised to park and enter the trial off Seufert Rd.) This trial is very well marked! It’s also Great for dogs!

Truly a breathtaking piece of paradise. A place with so many hidden gems even away from the main parts of the park. Must visit for any outdoor lover !

Amazing views on this trail! Be sure to check when it’s closed off if you’re traveling during the winter months!

Love this trail. Great for all ages, just be careful with young children since it's on the edge of the escarpment. Beautiful views all the way through, starts with a loud waterfall and ends with a birds eye view of Dundas Valley. There are a couple side trails and are definitely worth taking if you have the time. Take caution during winter and after rainfalls as it can get muddy and slippery! As long as you're aware of your surroundings and being safe you will make it home happy and smiling.

This is a nice trail, very scenic with views of Tews falls, unfortunately the trail to Webster's falls has been cut off.

I didn't hike. It is closed for the season. like chained off. You would have to break in to hike.

Stunning. Hiked it in the snow and although that made it cold and wet it was still awesome.

Beautiful trails. 3 different trails to choose from. A 7km and two 4km options.

Ummm, after looking at the map here it looks we weren't even on the real trail?? That makes sense now. My friend read about this in a photography book, it said there are 3 waterfalls, we only saw two.

Hidden! The entrance is not marked at all. We parked at the kayak launch site at the bottom of Seneca and walked up the road on the hill side (East) to get to the trail.
Some large trees fell recently (I'm assuming?) that blocked the path to the middle waterfall. There is a beautiful waterfall right away if you go down and to the left immediately after the trail head. Seems very rarely traveled, very overgrown trail.

Great hike! Very popular though and multiple water crossings. Be prepared to risk getting wet. Small children will likely need assistance.

You can also park off seufert rd for another trail head.

beautiful waterfalls

Good stuff, be ready to hold your children at certain points during the trail

Awesome views of waterfalls!

A little confusing on how the trails were marked. We started with a little mist and high 2 degrees but it didn’t matter.
We did extra km than what we expected but had a great time in such a beautiful place.

Nice fall family walk to the falls and back. Wide flat trail makes it an easy outing. Fire pit at the falls is an amazing payoff for the kids if you remember to pack the marshmallows!
