Great Falls: Ontario Waterfalls

Waterdown Falls, Ontario

This waterfall goes by a number of names including also Waterdown Falls, Grindstone Falls, Grand Falls, Smokey Hollow Falls and Waterdown Falls. Great Falls is probably my least favorite but it seems to be becoming accepted. Grindstone Falls has a nice ring to it but there is a falls by that name north of Thessalon. Personally I like Waterdown Falls.

The Grindstone Creek which flows through Waterdown, Ontario formerly powered a number of foundries and mill, and the resulting smoke gave the area the name Smoky Hollow. The Great Falls over this creek is a very accessible waterfall and a pleasure to visit. You can reach it by going south on Mill St. in Waterdown, from the Highway 5 intersection (Dundas St.) As you go down a hill to the left, you will see the small parking lot on your right.
