Exploring Ontario’s Waterfalls Episode #4: Tiffany Falls Waterfall, Ancaster Ontario
Tiffany Falls is a 21 metre high cascade waterfall whose source is nearby Tiffany Creek. It is located at the Tiffany Falls Conservation Area in Ancaster, Ontario and is one of several waterfalls in the Hamilton area.
Tiffany Falls was named after Dr. Oliver Tiffany, the district’s first doctor. Born in Massachusetts, he studied medicine at the Philadelphia Medical College, and came to Ancaster Township in 1796.
Tiffany Falls Conservation Area is considered a significant natural area. Its bedrock exposures are considered an Earth Science Area of Regional Significance. The central feature of the conservation area is the two waterfalls within it, Tiffany Falls and Washboard Falls, formed by Tiffany Creek.
The area provides a link between the green space corridor along the Niagara Escarpment through the Hamilton urban area, and the extensive natural areas of the Dundas Valley.
I was only able to get a few photos of Tiffany Falls due to the high number of people in the area.
