Tiffany Falls in Hamilton is a breathtaking cascade hidden in a forest
Tiffany Falls in Hamilton is one of the more popular waterfalls to visit in the GTA, and is equally if not more spectacular to see in the winter than it is in the summer.
Tiffany Falls is one of the more easily accessible waterfalls to visit, and is well worth a stop if you're near the conservation area this season.
Located off the Bruce Trail in Ancaster Ontario, it only takes about 5 minutes to reach Tiffany Falls via the Tiffany Falls Side Trail from the parking lot.
The path leads you across two short bridges and continues along a 360 metre path to a wooden viewing platform.
Following a gently flowing stream through the forest within the steep ravine, the path is generally flat, but it can get icy after a snow fall and cold temperatures.
Once temperatures remain below freezing for a period of time, the 21 metre ribbon waterfall freezes over into a majestic sight.
If you intend to visit, I recommend going during the week as the parking lot is small due to growing popularity.
Parking is also unfortunately outrageous, and will cost you $11 with a time limit of one hour. Your best bet would be to carpool with several friends and split the cost, or get dropped off.
During the winter, take caution as the trail is not maintained and can become slippery if icy.
