Greater Toronto - Waterfall List

Maps Featured Falls Full Roster

To my knowledge, there are no natural waterfalls within the city of Toronto. But there are a number of them just outside the city, and way more if you are willing to drive for up to an hour and a half or so. There are more than 100 within the city of Hamilton alone; so many that that area gets its own Hamilton Region page.

The best waterfalls in the Golden Horseshoe are found the Niagara area. Highlights such as Balls Falls,Upper and Lower Decew Falls, and Rockway Falls should be on everyone's list. And there are more ways to explore Niagara Falls than being the 3 billionth person to look over the fence.

A bunch of smaller falls are scattered to the west of Toronto, including some pretty little sites in Halton Region and beyond. Most of them are a little underwhelming, but finding them can still be a fun afternoon. Hilton Falls and The Cataract at Forks of the Credit are both much bigger and offer a great family hike. An outing to Elora is great for exploring in the Elora Gorge, and offers a fun shopping/dining experience afterwards.
