Not too far from Hamilton ('The City of Waterfalls') is a small town called Dundas. North of Dundas, the Bruce Trail - which leads from Niagara Falls all the way to Tobermory - passes by two waterfalls. We'd originally heard about the falls from seeing someone's photo on facebook, and were shocked to discover that such a beautiful place existed so close to home. On a warm June day we decided we'd had enough city and needed some nature so we grabbed an autoshare and drove west for a day of hiking.
A short hike away is another waterfall called 'Webster's Falls'.
It's a popular and well-cared for trail, and I'd love to try more hikes around there.
