Waterfalls

Often referred to as the waterfall capital of the world, Hamilton is home to more than 100 different waterfalls along the Niagara Escarpment and the Bruce Trail. From the Devil’s Punchbowl, a spectacular ribbon waterfall that cascades 37 metres in the air, to Albion Falls, a roaring complex classic cascade waterfall that tumbles 19 metres down the Escarpment, each waterfall offers hikers the special opportunity to pause and take in the unique sites and sounds made by water on its never-ending journey.
