Niagara Falls is definitely one of the most well known waterfalls in the entire world, but for those who don’t know, there are several other waterfalls in the area that are very beautiful this time of year!
Located in Grimsby, Ontario, there are an upper and lower waterfall within the gorge. You can park right beside the Upper Falls and have a beautiful view. The waterfalls are located within the Beamer Memorial Conservation Area.
Early Spring is the best time to view this waterfall as the water is really flowing. By later Summer, the water is much lower and less impressive. You can find Ball’s Falls in Jordan, Ontario within the Ball’s Falls Conservation Area. It is a short walk to both the Upper and Lower falls and definitely worth the time.
Rockway Falls is a bit more of a trek than the first two waterfalls. Located in Rockway, Ontario, this waterfall lays in a deep gorge with cliffs surrounding it. The hike is very straight forward and well worth the energy expenditure. On the way, you will also pass a much smaller, but still gorgeous, waterfall. For this waterfall, park at Rockway Community Centre and head on your way.
Decew Falls was the most difficult waterfall to reach, but also the most beautiful. Located in St. Catharines, Ontario, this waterfall is located right behind Morningstar Mill. Some of the trees along the way have fallen over and some of the slopes are fairly steep, but some helpful visitors have placed ropes along the way that help greatly.
Niagara Falls sees millions of tourists every year and rightly so. Gathered above, or boating below, this is one of the most popular features in the Niagara Region. The height of the falls is a whopping 50.9 metres with a flow of 2,271,247 litres per second! This year has been a popular time for Niagara Falls with the falls almost completely freezing over. There is a lot to see and do in the area, so make sure to check it out.
