If you're looking for a waterfall trip that the whole family can enjoy, this is the one. You can easily spend a whole afternoon in Elora, including waterfalling as well as quaint shopping and dining. The falls is a clear ramp form and is usually viewed from behind a stone wall at the end of Mill Street. But cross to the other side of the river to Ross St., and follow the public path near the river for a different view. There are several kilometres of wooded, rocky trails at the adjacent Conservation area. A few low cascades can be found further downstream. Another good access point is the large parking area at the end of James St, where you can find steps down to the rocky gorge of nearby Irvine Creek.   (updated June 20, 2014).
