A small falls on the west side of the Beaver Valley. Well, OK, it doesn't look small when you are standing in front of it! But water flow is rarely morethan a trickle. This is because the watershed feeding this waterfall is only 1 square kilometre; that's one of the smallest in this collection.

The Stew Hilts Side trail recently opened, allowing easy access to the base of this falls. When I say 'easy' I don't mean easy hiking! Be ready to really work, because you have to hike part way down the escarpment and then back up. The falls are named after Dr. Stew Hilts, Professor Emeritus at the Unversity of Guelph's School of Environmental Sciences.

This waterfall is featured in the 'Waterfalls of Ontario' book. Please pick up a copy to learn more. This helps to support this project. NOTE: There are no safety railings at this waterfall. Anyone that chooses to visit does so at their own risk.
