Heritage Falls, also known as Griffin Falls, is located in the Ancaster / Mineral Springs section of Hamilton on Hamilton Conservation Authority’s land on the trails behind the Griffin House. To reach this waterfall, park in the HCA parking lot at the Hermitage site at the corner of Sulphur Springs Rd. and Mineral Springs Rd. A nominal fee is charged for this. Then follow the Homestead Trail at the far end of the parking lot to Heritage Falls. Heritage Falls is located on a tributary of the Sulphur Creek and is considered a washboard classical cascade type waterfall. As this waterfall does dry up often, the best time to view this falls is after a heavy rainfall or during the winter snow melt.
