Oakville, Burlington Area Attractions - Tiffany Falls
Tiffany Falls, a beautiful 21 m high 'Cascade' waterfall in Ancaster, can be accessed by a short hike down a groomed trail through an enchanted woods.
To access Tiffany Falls from Burlington or Oakville, travel down the 403 to Hamilton and take the exit on Main St West. Follow it where it veers to the left towards Ancaster. Approximately half way up the escarpment you will find a parking area on the left called 'Tiffany Falls Conservation Area'.
Tiffany Falls is named after the area's first Doctor, Oliver Tiffany. Oliver came to the Ancaster area in 1796 and served the area for 40 years. He was well loved and respected and it is said that the there was a major traffic jam caused by horses and buggies at his funeral with over 600 people attending.
The forest surrounding Tiffany Falls are majestic and hold some rare treasures. One such treasure is the Butternut Tree, now a rare tree in Ontario.
In winter, ice climbers frequent Tiffany Falls and can be seen scaling the ice that hangs down the escarpment ledge above the falls.
Tiffany Creek flows gently down the side of the hill below the falls with many small rapids as it snakes itself prettily through the woods.
Tiffany Falls Conservation Area, part of Hamilton Region Conservation Area, is a favourite spot for tourists and visitors from Oakville, Burlington and surrounding area.
