Elora Gorge: Ontario Waterfalls

Elora Gorge can be accessed from the town of Elora. Look for a parking lot by the main street bridge beside an abandoned furniture factory and you will be beside the best part of it. Looking across the falls, you will see the Elora Mill. The whole area is worth exploring, there is a dam and a mill race on the other side of the bridge. You can access trails from behind the abandoned factory or make your way to a park on the other side which will get you to the river level.

The interesting rock formation at the crest of the falls is known as the Tooth of Time.

Downstream can be found the Little Elora Falls.

Chedoke Falls Lower: Ontario Waterfalls

Lower Chedoke Falls can be visited by going from Chedoke Falls and walking downstream or by going upstream from a viewing platform on the Bruce Trail. Both are difficult. I went from Chedoke Falls downstream and required making my way down a rough gorge with no real trail. It can be done with patience and care, and the reward is an excellent waterfall. The images hardly due it justice. The blocks of rock on top are taller than a man standing.

Brandywine Falls

Brandywine Falls is on the Sea to Sky Highway (Highway 99) between Whistler and Vancouver. It is a great looking plunge type waterfall which usually has a rainbow at the bottom. It is a light walk along the bank above and there are other nice views nearby. Well worth a visit.
