Sherman Falls

Located on private property along the Bruce Trail, this is where Ancaster Creek flows over the Niagara Escarpment. This waterfall, fed by springs from its headwaters, has a strong, continuous flow throughout most of the year. This lovely waterfall, also known as Fairy Falls or Angel Falls, has two cascading drops with a wide flat ledge that divides the upper and lower falls. Although it is located just off of the intersection of Lions Club Road and Old Dundas Road and is fairly large in size, many people pass by this hidden treasure without ever knowing of its existence.

The waterfall is named after the Sherman family, who had a farm in that area. The Shermans are well known in the Hamilton area, as Clifton Sherman founded Dofasco Inc. in 1912. He was joined later by his brother Frank A. Sherman. His son (and Clifton’s nephew), Frank H. Sherman, joined Dofasco in 1939 and served as an officer, director, chairman, and honorary chairman from 1949 until his death in 1994.

From the 403, take the Rousseaux exit. Follow Rousseaux to Wilson Street (2nd set of lights) and turn right onto Wilson Street. You’ll be heading down the escarpment. At the first set of lights, turn left on Montgomery Drive, then a quick right onto Old Dundas Road. You will come to a three-way intersection where Old Dundas Road crosses Lions Club Road. The falls are located in the woods to your left. Park on Lions Club Road.
