Tiffany Falls, Ontario

A newly renovated trail provides easy access to this lovely waterfall between Dundas and Ancaster, Ontario. Just upstream from it is the interesting Washboard Falls. To reach it, take the Mohawk exit from Highway 403 towards Ancaster and turn right at Wilson St. E. As you get near the bottom of the hill, look to your right to the signed parking lot for the trail beginning. There is a boardwalk from the lot to the falls.

Tiffany Falls is one of the nicest falls you can visit in the winter.
