Buttermilk Falls (Hamilton): Ontario Waterfalls

This can be an impressive waterfall when there is water in the system but it is often reduced to a trickle. A good spot to head to after several days of rain.

Rating:

Warning: It can be dangerous to view and photograph waterfalls. The footing can be wet and slippery, and an accidental fall can result in serious injury or death. Note also that many sections of waterfalls are on private property. Please respect these rights.

High Falls, Bracebridge: Ontario Waterfalls

High Falls is the most common name for an Ontario waterfall with at least six falls of that name. The one at Bracebridge is one of the best of them. It has a man made structure at the top but there are numerous excellent vantage points to get close to the falls and take photographs which eliminate it. Nearby there are two smaller falla known as Little High Falls and Potts Falls.
