About Waterdown Falls
Also called Smokey Hollow Falls or Grand Falls. It's a really nice waterfall that isn't as well known as some of the others in Hamilton. But don't miss this one. There is a good viewing platform and a nice trail that follows the gorge down through the Escarpment woods. Easy to find, with a parking lot on the west side of the road. NOTE: As of 2021, this falls as become very popular, and it can be all but impossible to find a spot in the little parking lot. Also, you are no longer able to access the gorge area. This is a shame, because you used to be able to hike behind the waterfall jet. At the same time, it's understandable that the authorities would want to prevent excessive erosion and degradation. Please do your part.
