This very small step falls was reported to me by Karen Limardi, who has probably hiked every trail along the Niagara Escarpment in the Niagara area. It is a low step falls, with just a few steps, giving a total fall of about 1 m. The falls can be found along the Jim Rainforth Side Trail, and are located right before the confluence with Middle 18 Mile Creek.

An entrance to the Bruce Trail can be found on the east side of Nineteenth St. The main trail heads to the right and up the hill, while the side trail soon leads off to the left. The trail reaches very close to the little falls after about 800 m.

There is no real parking spot near the trailhead. Roadside parking is discouarged, because of a blind hill. I have parked at the bottom of the hill where the shoulder is wider, and then walked up the hill on the east shoulder to the trail. The road is not very busy, but anyone making the choice to walk along the road does so at their own risk.
