Eugenia Falls: Ontario Waterfalls

Eugenia Falls can be reached by taking Grey Rd. 4 off Highway 10 at Flesherton.  At 3.5 km. (2.1 miles) turn left on Grey Rd. 13 and proceed to the village of Eugenia. The Falls is to the left and there are plenty of signs to guide you. The falls are in a wonderful setting, especially when the autumn color is out. They are at the head of a deep valley with a long vista of tree lined contours. It is not easy for photographers as their is a concrete wall along the length of the canyon walkway as well as trees which block the view. A little ingenuity is needed to use the cedars to frame the falls.

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.

The combination of mountains and high rainfall found on the Road to Hana in eastern Maui have combined to provide a large number of waterfalls which can be viewed just short distances from your car.
