Hello everyone!!

June is FAST approaching! I would like your opinion on which type of waterfall hunting experience you would like for June 16, 2018. A few things have changed in the Hamilton Area regarding hiking and searching for waterfalls. There have been fatalities at some of the waterfall sites in the area and the authorities have fenced off waterfall entrances and banned deviating off of the marked paths in Hamilton. There are signs everywhere stating that there is a maximum fine of $10,000.00 in effect for those who climb waterfalls, go in the streams or walk off of the marked trails in the Hamilton area. This new law has put a damper on the trip originally expected BUT there are a few options we have:

1. We have found a beautiful path along the Bruce Trail and Side Trails that we can hike on and still see waterfalls from above in the Hamilton area. The hike is well marked and beautiful. We could park our cars at Oak Knoll Parking Lot off of Mountain Brow Blvd in Hamilton and make an 8-10km hike (2-3 hour walk) in the area ending our hike back where we started from.

2. We could hike in the Hamilton area and park cars on two different sides of the Bruce trail, see waterfalls from above and go on an adventure to waterfalls we do not yet know the exact locations of (getting lost is possible) and use the cars to shuttle one another back to the place we started from.

3. We can bust out our watershoes and go to Balls Falls Conservation Area in Lincoln, Ontario, walk the paths and get close to the two waterfalls there. Afterward we will take a 5 minute car ride to the Bruce trail and explore another waterfall and the stream below. Anyone wanting to walk part of the Bruce trail from this waterfall is welcome and we can go as far as we would like to go in the stream or on the path.

Which adventure (1-3) is your preference for our trip on June[masked]?

We will choose a location to meet at depending on which adventure type the majority of the group chooses. You can use this page to arrange carpooling.

Each person will be required to sign a liability to participate in the activity.
